Welty, Modernism, Media

This panel will investigate Welty’s work and its interactions with multi-media influences such as advertising, film, journalism, magazine culture, music, photography, pulp fiction, radio, theater, television––that is to say, with all and any forms of media influence.  Papers may consider Welty as a modernist working with the same kinds of 20thC technological changes as such writers as Eliot or Joyce but, being a Mississippi woman meeting and appreciating change, possibly defining a different relationship to the modern

Please send statements of intent now, and full 300-word proposals by January 3, 2020 to Harriet Pollack, pollackh@cofc.edu.
