This “Faulkner and García Márquez” conference invites proposals for 15-20 minute papers on any topic related to William Faulkner and/or Gabriel García Márquez. All critical approaches, including pedagogical, are welcomed. We are particularly interested in inter-textual approaches that treat both authors. Proposals for organized panels are also encouraged.
Possible topics could include: race, gender, class, sexuality, psychology, biography, history, war, economics, poverty, the Global South, religion, urban/rural divides, nature, hunting, myth, humor, language, narrative technique, genre, and magical realism.
In addition to the paper sessions, the conference will include a keynote address by Deborah Cohn, an opening banquet, a tour of the University’s renowned L. D. Brodsky Collection of William Faulkner Materials, and a Faulkner and García Márquez-themed art exhibition and reception.
Expanded versions of papers will be considered for possible publication in a collection of essays to be published by Southeast Missouri State University Press as part of their Faulkner Conference Series. Conference presentations and book submissions must be in English.
