Call for Papers
Faulkner and Twain
A Conference Sponsored by the Center for Faulkner Studies
Southeast Missouri State University
Cape Girardeau, Missouri
October 19-21, 2006

This "Faulkner and Twain" conference invites proposals for twenty-minute
papers on any topic related to Faulkner and/or Twain. All critical
approaches, including theoretical and pedagogical, are welcomed, as well as
papers on special collections of Twain and Faulkner. We are particularly
interested in inter-textual approaches and papers treating such topics as
the river, the frontier, humor, race, and history. 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 Twain, exhibits from the university's Faulkner and Twain
collections, and an historic tour of the local area.

Expanded versions of papers dealing with both authors 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 April 30, 2006, to:


Inquiries should be directed to Robert Hamblin at
