Losing Battles & Welty's complex interplay of the visual and verbal.
From signs to photographs to letters to oral history, Eudora Welty employs layers of visual and verbal texts in her 1970 novel Losing Battles. Celebrating the 40th anniversary of the publication of this novel, this session seeks papers that examine the interplay between text and image in, arguably, Welty's most complex novel. Please send 500 word abstracts to Rebecca Harrison (firstname.lastname@example.org ) by June 30, 2010 (extended deadline).
