218 ELT RESEARCH IN PROGRESS: 1965 by Edward S. Lauterbach ELT Research in Progress lists book-length projects and doctoral dissertations being written by scholars working in British literature of the 1880-1920 period. The purpose of this compilation is twofold: 1) to indicate the type of topics being investigated; and 2) to put scholars working on similar subjects, or with pertinent information which they wish to share, in touch with one another. It should be emphasized that listing in ELT Research in Progress does not give a scholar a monopoly on any one subject. Though an indication of current research may avoid duplication of effort, we feel that there is room for similar or related studies in the ELT period. ELT Research in Progress will contîne on a yearly basis. Inclusion in the 1965 compilation does not mean that inclusion is automatic for the I966 listing. If the interested scholar wishes to be listed, he must indicate this annually by sending a post card to the Associate Editor of ELT, E. S. Lauterbach, giving name, address, and a brief summary of the research topic. The deadline for inclusion In the 1966 ELT Research in Progress in November 1, 1965. It wi11 be a great help if all information is put on a post card rather than in letters. Since several scholars listed in the 1963-64 ELT Research in Progress did not renew their topic this year, anyone interested in checking work being done on a particular author or subject should also refer to ELT, Vl: 3 (1963), 171-73. The organization of the listing is alphabetical by both topic and specific author. The names of scholars working on identical figures or topics are given in alphabetical order.
