"Faulknerian Anniversaries"

In light of SSSL's "Anniversaries" theme for 2012, the William Faulkner Society invites 20-minute papers that explore the making or the marking of significant anniversaries, milestone events, lieux or milieux de mémoire, or rituals of commemoration within the Faulkner oeuvre, with particular attention to the cultural and political work of memory at stake in such practices. Comparative treatments of specific Faulkner texts or of Faulkner and other writers are welcome. 500-word abstracts or complete session proposals by December 1 via email attachment to Jay Watson, jwatson@olemiss.edu. No WordPerfect attachments, please!
