Georgia College & State University (Milledgeville, GA) is hosting "Reconsidering Flannery O'Connor," an NEH Summer Institute for college and university professors, throughout July 2007. The O'Connor Institute will feature lectures and discussions with guest faculty Richard Giannone, Sarah Gordon, Michael Kreyling, Farrell O'Gorman, Virginia Wray, and Patricia Yaeger. Twenty-five professors from a variety of disciplines will be selected to study O'Connor's works in Milledgeville at GCSU, O'Connor's alma mater, the home of the major collection of O'Connor's papers. The major goal of the Institute is to prepare college and university professors to improve their teaching of O'Connor at the undergraduate level. Participants will receive a stipend of $3,000 from the NEH to help with the cost of food and lodging during the Institute.
At the official website for the Institute: http://www2.gcsu.edu/nehinstitute/, one can view full information about the Institute, as well as information from NEH about how to apply. The deadline for applications is 1 March 2007. Questions may be directed to either of the co-directors for the O'Connor Institute: Marshall Bruce Gentry email@example.com) or John D. Cox (firstname.lastname@example.org).
