Southern Crossroads Storytelling Conference

LSU Alexandria (Alexandria, Louisiana)

October 13 and 14, 2006


Alice Walker's story "Everyday Use" uses quilts as a symbol for her
characters' familial past. These quilts, though certainly valuable
artistically, must still be of everyday use to the family. The quilts
will wear out from use, certainly, but these worn squares would be, as
they've always been, replaced with new squares; the piece from
great-great-grandma's sundress might be replaced with a patch from
daddy's overalls.

Decoding Literature in Conflict
Graduate Conference
Saint Louis University, Madrid, Spain
June 9, 2006

Sometimes violent, sometimes passive, literature not only relates conflict,
but also creates it. At Saint Louis University Madrid's 4th-annual graduate
conference, we invite our peers to consider "Decoding Conflict in
Literature." From the nuclear family to nuclear warfare, the Spanish Civil
War to colonial unrest, writers dealing with conflict in literature require
and demand their readers' attention and response.

Topics of the conference to include:
