CFP: Eudora Welty and Photography (3/17/06; MLA '06)

This special MLA session will examine Eudora Welty's visual aesthetic. How has
Welty been imagined/authorized through photography and visual culture? What is
the connection between Welty's photography and her writing? Is her fiction
somehow cinematic? How might we problematize Welty's "provincialism" by
viewing her through the lens of mass, visual culture? This panel encourages
intertextual, interdisciplinary approaches.

Please send 1-2 page abstracts (500 words) by March 17th to Dina Smith (Dept. of
English, Drake University): dina.smith_at_drake.edu
