William Shakespeare was Emily Dickinson’s favorite writer, and her letters abound with references to him and his works. Dickinson’s allusions to Shakespeare’s writings evidence his pervasive presence in her life but also signal his ubiquitous place in her culture. In collaboration with the Emily Dickinson Museum, the 2020 EDIS Annual Meeting will be held July 31 to August 1 in Amherst, Massachusetts. This year’s focus is Dickinson’s great love of Shakespeare, and this theme will shape the features of this annual meeting, including the reading groups, tours of the Dickinson Museum, performances, readings, seminar-style discussions, and talks.
