IMPORTANT CONFERENCE PANEL SCHEDULED
Members of HUMANIST are cordially invited to attend the forthcoming
meeting of the Mississippi Philological Association, in Jackson,
Mississippi, on January 26, 27, and 28, 1989, at the Radisson Hotel
of Jackson. The conference will include a panel hosted by Humanist
member Kevin L. Cope, the title of which is "Modernity: A Problem for
All Ages." The panel will address the problems created in all eras
by the dogged determination to imagine the present age as the "contemporary"
or "modern" one. Papers will include an essay by Ellen Chauvin on
Machiavelli, an essay by Henry Russell on Kipling, and essay by Deborah
Jacobs on matrimony in the seventeenth century, an essay by Patricia Gardner
Kersey on poets and their idea of modern community, and an essay by Michaer
Crumb on the topic of the drum of post-modernity. This should be a startling
event. Be there***** Write to me for information, or get in touch with
Rosalie Daniels of the Department of English at Jackson State University,
Jackson, Mississippi, 39217, U. S. A., who is the President of the MPA.
