News of an upcoming academic conference (or perhaps a conference strand?) on Lovecraft, to be held in Vermont — Weird Lovecraft: H.P. Lovecraft, Weird Tales, and the American Horror Canon…

“The College of St. Joseph is actively looking for paper proposals that explore the way that Lovecraft and/or Weird Tales helped construct the American horror canon or the American horrific aesthetic.”

“Papers will be presented at the College of St. Joseph’s popular culture conference, held 26-27th October 2012.”

See the PDF for details. Sadly, I see that the deadline for abstacts has passed — it was 15th May. Better initial publicity needed, next time, methinks.
