Faulkner in the Media Ecology, 23-25 November, 2011

Centre for Modernism Studies in Australia, University of New South Wales, Kensington Campus, Sydney, Australia

Building on a string of recent work on both Faulkner scholarship and Modernism studies, this signature international conference is set to explore the sometimes open, sometimes hidden, relationship between the verbal art of perhaps America’s greatest novelist, and the mechanical and electronic media that increasingly defined the communications of his time.

The Centre for Modernism Studies in Australia and the School of English, Media and Performing Arts is proud to host the “Faulkner in the Media Ecology” conference, where established and emergent scholars from three continents will explore this urgent theme over three days in late November.
