THE EUDORA WELTY SOCIETY

The Eudora Welty Society welcomes a range of papers, but proposals addressing Welty and the SAMLA 88 theme of "Utopia/Dystopia: Whose Paradise Is It?" are especially welcome. We also are interested in work that investigates how Welty's fiction, essays, or photography interact with politics, jazz, the blues, newspapers, magazines, television, film, and other texts. Consider also how Welty's work has been reimagined by other artists, such as Claire Holley's song "Pleasant Dreams" inspired by "The Whistle." By June 1, 2016, please send a 300-500 word abstract, a brief bio, and any A/V requirements to William Murray at wpmurray@crimson.ua.edu.

In order to promote dialogue between “East” and “West”, and to also unpack and problematize those categories, we welcome papers that address a broad range of issues, especially in relation to literature, art, film, and popular culture. Interdisciplinary and theoretical approaches are encouraged and especially approaches that focus on contentious political and moral issues. While traditional forms of presentation are welcome, participants may also make use of less conventional modes involving, for example, pictorial essays or the incorporation of social media.

An examination of cultural representations of breastfeeding that attends to diffuse discourses about infant feeding, ranging from medical and anthropological to socioeconomic and cultural, all the while utilizing feminist methodologies, can facilitate an interrogation of the feminist implications ofbreastfeeding advocacy, including essentializing discourses about women’s bodies as the “natural” choice for infant feeding and the complex considerations women and families navigate in making decisions about infant feeding.
