The Tennessee Williams Scholars’ Conference invites the submission of essays on virtually any topic related Tennessee Williams’s plays, poetry, fiction, and essays, as well as papers dealing with film adaptations of his plays. All first-time presenters are required to submit a full-length essay (10-15 pp.) that will be refereed by Williams specialists. Although full-length submissions are required, presenters at the conference will read only an abstract (1-2 pp.) of their essays, thus allowing for questions/comments from the audience and an intellectually lively give-and-take.
Conference Location and Date:
The Historic New Orleans Collection
Williams Research Center, 410 Chartres Street
New Orleans, LA
Friday, March 28, 2008
Conference presenters receive free admission to several events associated with the Tennessee Williams/New Orleans Literary Festival (March 26–30), as well as a reduced hotel rate.
Papers accepted for the Scholars' Conference may also be considered for publication in The Tennessee Williams Annual Review, a scholarly journal published in partnership with The Historic New Orleans Collection.
