The Cormac McCarthy Society invites paper proposals for its Fall 2017 Conference, to be held Sept. 1-3 in Austin, Texas. Based on the new, exciting Nautilus essay, we have decided to extend the submission deadline to April 30, 2017.

Papers on all topics relating to the works of Cormac McCarthy, from all perspectives, are invited, including considerations of theatrical productions or film adaptations of his work, pedagogical approaches, and the relationship of McCarthy’s work to other authors or artists.

Please submit a brief abstract of the proposed paper as a Word doc or PDF by email to the Cormac McCarthy Society at McCarthyConference2017@gmail.com no later than April 30, 2017.

Proposals for complete panels are welcome as well. Please include titles and abstracts for at least three participants.

Conference registration and hotel information is available on cormacmccarthy.com.  We hope to see you there!
