Call for Papers    


Faulkner in the World
Deadline: September 30, 2003

Scholars from Europe, Asia, South America, Africa and Oceania are invited to submit their proposals for a compilation of international essays on the reception of William Faulkner’s fiction in specific national, political and historical contexts, to be published in 2004.

The purpose of this volume is to offer a multifaceted discussion of ways in which different political and cultural settings outside North America affect the reading of Faulkner’s fiction; in other words, to study not only the impact of his fiction on different cultural contexts worldwide, but also the impact of those same contexts on the reading of Faulkner; how different worldviews frame and inform his artistic production. History and memory, national imaginations, cultural difference and cultural affinity are the suggested themes for the critical analyses to be gathered.

Finished papers (no longer than 6000 words, MLA style) should be submitted to:

Paula Mesquita (University of Coimbra)
Rua Diogo de Castilho, 12 r-c
Celas 3000-140 Coimbra
