To mark the centenary of Elizabeth Bishop’s birth, and to celebrate her contribution to world literature,
a special conference will be held 9-12 June 2011 in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. Working under the
title, “It must be Nova Scotia:” Negotiating Place in the Writings of Elizabeth Bishop,” the conference
will focus on Bishop’s examinations of place and placelessness, her fascination with borders and shifting
cultural geographies, and her unique position as an artist who lived and wrote both for and against
competing definitions of “home.”
