The South remains an interesting source of observation—literature,

This call for papers seeks contributors offering a wide variety of
interpretations and criticisms of contemporary Southern literature and
culture against the backdrop of popular culture and postmodern
society, although other approaches are also solicited. Presentations
covering a broad range of Southern literature pieces and critical
approaches are welcome; presentations should be developed for a
20-minute reading.
