FLANNERY O'CONNOR: BREAKING (O'CONNOR'S) RULES (SAMLA)
The Flannery O’Connor Society invites papers on topics relevant to O'Connor's interpretations of and commentary on her own work, including but not limited to: the value of deferring to O'Connor's readings of her own stories, O'Connor's religious vision, O'Connor's definitions of grotesque or gothic, or O'Connor's politics. We want to know: how much should we let O'Connor dictate the meaning of her work? Please send a 300-word abstract by June 15, 2020, to Sarah Shermyen, University of Georgia, at email@example.com. Please also include a brief bio and any A/V requirements in your abstract. Paper will be read at SAMLA in Jacksonville, FL; November 13-15, 2020.
