deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, May 15, 2019

Papers for this session may focus on any aspect of Walker Percy’s life and works, either fiction or non-fiction.  Especially welcome are topics relevant to the South Atlantic Modern Longauge Association's 2019 conference theme: “Languages: Power, Identity, Relationships.”  For Percy, the human capacity for language and for naming gives us our identity and is only possible through relationships of intersubjectivity.  Percy wrote extensively on language, creating his “radical anthropology” based on his unique semiotic, with these themes pervasive in his novels.  For more information about conference theme, see:  https://samla.memberclicks.net/
