The Emily Dickinson International Society was incorporated in 1988 in Massachusetts to:

• Promote, perpetuate, and enhance the study and appreciation of Emily Dickinson throughout the world
• Establish and support local chapters
• Sponsor a journal
• Establish a Center for Dickinson Studies
• Secure the future of the Dickinson properties in Amherst, namely the Homestead and the Evergreens, as cultural and historical treasures
• Obtain by purchase, gift, or otherwise writings and materials relevant to Dickinson studies
• Acquire, own, or lease and hold any real estate and buildings necessary or proper

The theme of the Emily Dickinson International Society (EDIS) 2010 international conference, held at the Rothermere American Institute, Oxford University, England, is “’were I Britain born’: Dickinson’s British Connections.” Papers with a focus on Dickinson’s transatlantic reading, connections with specific British writers, her British reception, and transatlantic influences on Dickinson’s thought and writing sat alongside papers on all related topics.

For the EDIS 2010 Conference Kristen Kreider was invited to present a paper entitled 'Lyric Encounters: The Material Poetics of Emily Dickinson’s Later Manuscript Pages'. The paper draws on some of the themes and ideas found in her recent publication ''Scrap', 'Flap', 'Strip', 'Stain', 'Cut': The Material Poetics of Emily Dickinson's Later Manuscript Pages, which had recently been published by The Emily Dickinson Journal.
