William Murray
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, June 1, 2016

THE EUDORA WELTY SOCIETY

The Eudora Welty Society welcomes a range of papers, but proposals addressing Welty and the SAMLA 88 theme of "Utopia/Dystopia: Whose Paradise Is It?" are especially welcome. We also are interested in work that investigates how Welty's fiction, essays, or photography interact with politics, jazz, the blues, newspapers, magazines, television, film, and other texts. Consider also how Welty's work has been reimagined by other artists, such as Claire Holley's song "Pleasant Dreams" inspired by "The Whistle." By June 1, 2016, please send a 300-500 word abstract, a brief bio, and any A/V requirements to William Murray at wpmurray@crimson.ua.edu.
