Call for Papers

Faulkner and Morrison

A Conference Sponsored by the Center for Faulkner Studies

Southeast Missouri State University

Cape Girardeau, Missouri

October 28-30, 2010

 This “Faulkner and Morrison” conference invites proposals for twenty-
minute papers on any topic related to William Faulkner and/or Toni
Morrison. All critical approaches, including theoretical and
pedagogical, are welcomed. We are particularly interested in inter-
textual approaches and papers treating such topics as race, gender,
class, history, humor, and technique. Proposals for organized panels are
also encouraged.

 In addition to the paper sessions, the conference will include a keynote
address by a noted scholar, a dramatic presentation based on the works of
Faulkner and Morrison, exhibits from the University’s Faulkner and
Morrison collections, and a guided tour of the historical downtown Cape
Girardeau and riverfront.

 Expanded versions of the papers will be considered for possible
publication in a collection of essays. Southeast Missouri State
University Press has expressed an interest in such a collection.

 E-mail a 250-word abstract by May 31, 2010, to:

 Inquiries should be directed to Robert Hamblin at or
