[UPDATE] Lawrence Durrell's Legacy - Louisville Conference (Feb. 21-23, 2013)

The Louisville Conference on Literature and Culture Since 1900

Louisville, KY | 21-23 February 2013

Deadline extended to October 7

As we continue our reflections on Lawrence Durrell inspired by his centenary in 2012, a number of questions remain. What is Lawrence Durrell's legacy? How have we read his body of work? How have we misread it? How has it shaped or been excluded from a sense of canon? Where do we recognize Durrell's influence, and how do we "place" Durrell's work in the contexts in which it makes the most sense?

This panel will explore the lasting influence of The Godfather on popular culture &, conversely, its literary and cultural influences. What effect has it had on popular notions of Italian-American ethnic identity? What impact have recent adaptations (from Winegardner novels to video games) had on the film's legacy? Upon what traditions and cultural archetypes does it rely? Papers may treat Puzo's novel, Coppola's films, or other adaptations. Please send 250-word abstracts to Jeffrey Gibson at gibsonje@wesley.edu.
