Sean Latham is the Director of the Tulsa University Institute for Bob Dylan Studies, which is related to The Bob Dylan Archives and The Bob Dylan Center. He is also the Pauline McFarlin Walter Endowed Chair of English and Comparative Literature at the University of Tulsa where he serves as Editor of the James Joyce Quarterly and founding director of the Oklahoma Center for the Humanities.
The Institute for Bob Dylan Studies at Tulsa University is the academic arm associated with The Bob Dylan Center and Archives, and they host conferences and events, publish, and do research and writing on Bob Dylan.
The Institute produced the The World of Bob Dylan conference in 2019, before there was a Bob Dylan Center, and before the Archives were even in a permanent home. It was a fantastic event that attracted 500 Dylan researchers and lovers to Tulsa for 3-days of presentations and special events.
They've hosted a bunch of events since then, and are now gearing up for The World of Bob Dylan 2023 in early June. They're currently (through 1/15) accepting proposals papers or presentations for this event. Sean tells us what they learned in 2019, what they're planning for 2023, and a lot more.
