The Ezra Pound Research Center focuses on the edition of and research into Ezra Pound’s literary work, fosters the critical analysis of the poet’s œuvre and promotes its understanding.
The Research Center carries out editorial projects which make available the poet’s literary legacy and complement the corpus of already existing text-critical editions and translations; initiates and takes part in research projects directly linked to the poet’s literary work; organizes readings, colloquia, work-shops and conferences and thus serves as an international collaboration forum for Pound scholars and as a training center for young researchers; makes the results of its activity available to the public through digital media as well as through its own publication series, which publishes the poet’s texts, including translations thereof, as well as selected studies on his literary work; assigns and acts as an intermediary for scholarships or study grants for research stays dedicated to studying Pound’s writings; takes part in the acquisition, cataloguing and archiving of the poet’s literary legacy.
