Half a century after William Faulkner's demise, his inciting works and artistic example still continue to challenge misconceptions and misappropriations. Faulkner's legacy equally keeps triggering heated debates and rebuttals, along with radical reappraisals. The present conference intends to be the first of a series of biennial events to examine the international relevance of Faulkner's works and their fecund worldwide impact, along with their centrality to American studies.
Keynote Speakers: Robert Hamblin (Southeast Missouri State University), "The International Faulkner"
CFP: Scandinavian Film Comedy
"If someone ever asks you if you would like to see a Swedish, Norwegian, Danish, Icelandic, Finnish […] comedy then... well, I won't say 'Run for your life!!' but I will say 'Be careful'. Movies in the north love to deal with serious issues like death, drugs, alcohol and other fun stuff, and even most of our comedies will leave you with a feeling that the world is a horrible place."

Ten years after the publication of Nathaniel Lewis' Unsettling the Literary West: Authenticity and Authorship, western, post-western, and critical regional studies still grapple with the problem of authenticity in the American West. If, as Lewis playfully suggests, the "very struggle over authenticity [is] perhaps the only 'true' condition of the western cultural imagination," then how might this struggle have altered the tone of Western literary and cultural criticism in the last decade? What does the poststructural, postmodern distrust of authenticity do to encourage fresh analyses of texts previously heralded for their authentic portrayals of the West?
Keynote Speaker: Dr. Stephen Sicari
We welcome papers concentrating on 'spaces' that could be considered 'monstrous' or are in some way capable of creating 'monstrosity.' Spaces may be real or imagined, literal or metaphorical, psychological or material. Literal places may include sites of trauma, genocide, or biological experimentation; dystopias; colonized regions; mythical lands; etc. Psychological spaces may include memory, neurosis, philosophy, etc. Monstrosity may be perceived as depravity; social or sexual taboos; hegemonic power in the form of racism, classism, sexism; etc. Papers may challenge, call to light, or reinforce perceptions of monstrosity.
