Call for Papers
Faulkner and Chopin
A Conference Sponsored by the Center for Faulkner Studies and the Department of English
Southeast Missouri State University
Cape Girardeau, Missouri 63701
October 2-4, 2008
This Faulkner and Chopin conference invites proposals for twenty-minute papers on any topic relating to Faulkner and/or Chopin. All critical approaches, including theoretical and pedagogical, are welcomed, as well as papers on special collections of Faulkner and Chopin. We are particularly interested in inter-textual approaches and papers treating topics such as race, gender, class, history, New Orleans, narrative technique, and the role of the artist. Proposals for organized panels are also encouraged.
In addition to the paper sessions, the conference will include a keynote address, dramatic readings based on the works of Faulkner and Chopin, exhibits from the University’s Faulkner and Chopin collections, and an historic tour of the local area.
E-mail a 250-word abstract by April 30, 2008, to: firstname.lastname@example.org
