William Morris Society on Facebook!

The William Morris Society has joined the rest of the world and inaugurated a Facebook page. This means of communication will be updated frequently with news of Society events in the United States and in Britain. We aim to make the page a special resource for scholars by posting announcements of publications, conferences, and relevant fellowship and grant opportunities which often are hard to deal with on the William Morris Society web site. Finally, to keep the spirit of William Morris alive we'll be using the "discussion" function on Facebook to facilitate lively and academic conversation.

Become a fan by searching "William Morris Society" from your own Facebook page or by following this link.
