This session welcomes 250 to 300 word abstracts that seek to elucidate the vagueness the colors any aspect of Faulkner's narrators. Abstracts that incorporate this year's convention theme of "The Interplay between Text and Image" are welcome but not required. Please send abstracts and current CVs to Victoria.M.Bryan@gmail.com by September 30, 2010.

Panelists are invited to submit papers addressing the group or any members: Adams, Benchley, Broun, Connelly, Kaufman, Parker, Ross, Sherwood, Toohey, Woollcott.
