I am organizing a proposed panel on representations of the city within Faulkner's texts for the upcoming ALA Symposium "The City and American Literature." I'm looking for 2-4 proposals on any aspect of the city in Faulkner's works. If interested, please send a 250-500 word abstract to jcobrien@memphis.edu by June 27, 2015.

Jefferson, Mississippi is definitely on the table, but I am especially interested in his treatments, portrayals, and uses of larger cites (Memphis, New Orleans, Chicago, Los Angeles, etc.).

The Symposium will be held September 10-12 at the Hotel Monteleone in New Orleans, LA. Read more at: http://americanliteratureassociation.org/calls/symposia/ala-symposium-th...
