                        Faulkner In The World

Scholars from Europe, Asia, South America, Africa and Oceania are
invited to submit their proposals for a compilation of international
essays on the reception of William Faulkner’s fiction in specific
national, political and historical contexts, to be published in 2004.

The purpose of this volume is to offer a multifaceted discussion of
ways in which different political and cultural settings outside North
America affect the reading of Faulkner’s fiction; in other words, to
study not only the impact of his fiction on different cultural
contexts worldwide, but also the impact of those same contexts on the
reading of Faulkner; how different worldviews frame and inform his
artistic production.
History and memory, national imaginations, cultural difference and
cultural affinity are the suggested themes for the critical analyses
to be gathered.

Finished papers (no longer than 6000 words, MLA style) should be
submitted to:

Paula Mesquita (University of Coimbra)
Rua Diogo de Castilho, 12 r-c
Celas 3000-140 Coimbra

The deadline for submission is 30 September 2003.
