CALL FOR PAPERS:
The Moviegoer at Fifty
The Inaugural Conference of the Walker Percy Center for Writing and Publishing
Loyola University New Orleans October 14-16, 2011
To celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of The Moviegoer, Loyola University New Orleans will host a two-day conference on its campus, October 14-16, 2011. The conference will include special guest speakers and panels, as well as events honoring the life and work of Walker Percy, his enduring portrait of New Orleans, and the longings of the American spirit in the mid-twentieth century.
We are especially interested in paper and panel proposals that address aspects of Percy's best-known novel-its contexts, its effects, its influences, and its place in American and southern literary history.
Please send two-page session proposals and/or one-page individual paper abstracts by May 31, 2011 to firstname.lastname@example.org. Participants will be notified by June 15. More details: http://loyno.edu/wpc/call-papers
