CFP: SAMLA 2016

14 May

South Atlantic Modern Language Association 2016
Raleigh, North Carolina

In light of the conference theme of utopia/dystopia, the Carson McCullers Society and the Carson McCullers Center for Writers and Musicians invite papers that explore the ways in which McCullers’ work presents settings and characters situated and interacting within ideal or imperfect structures and relationships. Further, 2017 will mark McCullers’ 100th birthday, and we might consider how her life and work resonates as we look to this centennial and what it offers to contemporary understandings of utopia/dystopia. Presentations about McCullers and her work that are not directly related to the conference theme are also welcome. Please send abstracts of 300-500 words to Casey Kayser at ckayser@uark.edu by June 1, 2016.
