The 29th Annual Faulkner and Yoknapatawpha Conference
University of Mississippi, July 21-26, 2002
We are inviting conference papers for panels addressing the literary and intellectual relations Faulkner shares with other writers and artists. Papers that explore the extent to which his work is a reflection of, and a commentary on, the major intellectual movements of the day are particularly welcome.
Here are some issues that might be addressed: Who are those writers with whom Faulkner can be most usefully compared? What are the artistic and intellectual movements that most pervade Faulkner's work?
Are there any movements with which Faulkner is not normally linked --
such as the Lost Generation, the Harlem Renaissance, Proletarian
Literature -- that might reveal unexpected insights into Faulkner, or
that might themselves be altered by being viewed through a Faulknerian
ens? To what extent is Faulkner truly a writer of his age --
reflecting and responding to the written world around him -- and to what extent is he the iconoclast, going his unique way?
