The University of Alabama at Birmingham, the University of Alabama, and the University of Alabama at Huntsville are proud to cohost the 2017 Conference on John Milton, continuing the long tradition begun in Murfreesboro, TN. The conference will be held on October 12-14, 2017 at the Doubletree Hotel in downtown Birmingham AL, just on the edge of the UAB campus. The conference will feature a dramatic reading of Samson Agonistes commissioned from regional acting company Improbable Fictions, and the final banquet will be held in the superb Birmingham Civil Rights Institute with free museum admission for all attendees.
Faculty members, graduate students, and independent scholars interested in the works of Milton are encouraged to submit papers on this site. The deadline for paper submissions is June 19, 2017. The last day to register is August 25.
