A Conference Sponsored by the Center for Faulkner Studies
Southeast Missouri State University
Cape Girardeau, Missouri
October 28-30, 2010
This “Faulkner and Morrison” conference invites proposals for twenty-minute papers on any topic related to William Faulkner and/or Toni Morrison. All critical approaches, including theoretical and pedagogical, are welcomed. We are particularly interested in inter-textual approaches and papers treating such topics as race, gender, class, history, humor, and technique. Proposals for organized panels are also encouraged.
In addition to the paper sessions, the conference will include a keynote address by a noted scholar, a dramatic presentation based on the works of Faulkner and Morrison, exhibits from the University’s Faulkner and Morrison collections, and a guided tour of the historical downtown Cape Girardeau and riverfront.
Expanded versions of the papers will be considered for possible publication in a collection of essays. Southeast Missouri State University Press has expressed an interest in such a collection.
