Georgia College & State University is hosting "Reconsidering Flannery O'Connor," a National Endowment for the Humanities Summer Institute for College and University Professors to be held throughout July 2007 in Milledgeville, GA, home of Flannery O'Connor. Twenty-five participants will be selected to engage in this Institute and will receive stipends from NEH to help with expenses.
Each participant will have the opportunity to spend one week working with O'Connor's manuscripts housed in the Flannery O'Connor Collection at GCSU. Participants will also engage in discussions with, and hear lectures by, six guest faculty: Richard Giannone of Fordham, Sarah Gordon of GCSU, Michael Kreyling of Vanderbilt, Farrell O'Gorman of Mississippi State, Virginia Wray of Lyon, and Patricia Yaeger of Michigan.
