Organization: Flannery O'Connor Society
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 300-word abstracts by June 15, 2020, to Sarah Shermyen, University of Georgia, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please also include a brief bio and any A/V requirements in your abstract.
