This special session welcomes, but is not limited to, abstracts that examine Faulkner's poetry, the connections between his poetry and his fiction, common themes between his poetry and his fiction, Faulkner's stance of fiction vs. poetry, etc. Please send 250-300 word abstracts and brief CVs to Victoria M. Bryan (VMBryan@olemiss.edu) by June 15, 2011.
