"Flannery O'Connor and Her Heirs"

The Flannery O'Connor regular session seeks proposals for presentations on literary relationships between O'Connor and subsequent American writers. Examples of possible approaches include studies of specific related works, introductions of new writers influenced by O'Connor, broader considerations of O'Connor's place in or influence on the development of American literature, and explorations of specific personal interactions between O'Connor and other authors, or between authors responding to O'Connor's influence. Proposals related to genres other than fiction, as well as relevant creative work, are welcome also. Please email abstracts and either a cover letter or 2-page CV by March 1, 2014, to Tara Powell at tfpowell@gmail.com.
