Blake in Our Time:

Zoamorphosis is proud to make available video recordings of the recent “Blake in Our Time: A Symposium Celebrating the Future of Blake Studies and the Legacy of G.E. Bentley Jr.” held at the University of Toronto on 28 August 2010. “Blake in Our Time” explored the history of Blake studies, as well as its possible futures in manuscript studies, online resources, private collections, forgeries and oddities, variations in Blake’s illuminated manuscripts, modernist cinema, and media studies.

Visitors to the site will now find videos of all the talks from the symposium at http://zoamorphosis.com/2010/09/blake-in-our-time/ as eleven videocasts on the site.

Other posts for September:

This month saw the launch of a new book on Blake published by Romantic Circles as part of its Praxis series. Editing and Reading Blake, co-edited by Wayne C. Ripley and Justin Van Kleeck, is a collection of essays that looks at the profound challenges William Blake poses to both editors and readers. Also, Richard Wright, winner of last year’s Turner Prize, is the third and final artist to curate the Contemporary Art Society series at Tate Britain from 13 September to 5 December 2010.

In addition, this month saw two more articles on the Zoamorphosis blog, one on the collaborative William Blake Birthday Book which shows that social media is not restricted to the online sphere, and a piece on Esperanza Spalding who has been attracting a great deal of attention with her new album, Chamber Music Society, the first track of which is based on Blake’s poem “The Fly”.
