Department of English

This Faulkner and Chopin conference invites proposals for twenty-minute
papers on any topic relating to Faulkner and/or Chopin. All critical
approaches, including theoretical and pedagogical, are welcomed, as well
as papers on special collections of Faulkner and Chopin. We are
particularly interested in inter-textual approaches and papers treating
topics such as race, gender, class, history, New Orleans, narrative
technique, and the role of the artist. Proposals for organized panels are
also encouraged.

In addition to the paper sessions, the conference will include a keynote
address, dramatic readings based on the works of Faulkner and Chopin,
exhibits from the University’s Faulkner and Chopin collections, and an
historic tour of the local area.
