Due to delays in submissions, and so as not to compromise the
geographical diversity of essays we are aiming for, the deadline for
article submissions to the volume Faulkner in the World has been
extended until 31st January 2004.

                      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
internationally 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
Rua Diogo de Castilho 12 r-c
Celas 3000-140 Coimbra, Portugal
