Open Topic:
The Eudora Welty Society is seeking paper proposals for two sessions of the 2013 ALA conference. Areas of particular interest are the intersection of Welty's work with issues of labor, the gothic genre, depictions of religion, war, and consumer culture, but we are leaving the topic open to allow for a variety of perspectives on any element of Eudora Welty's work. We welcome considerations of Welty's work from new viewpoints or theories. Please submit 250 word proposals for 20 minute presentations to Sarah Ford at All proposals must be received by January 9th, 2013.
