The Carson McCullers Society is soliciting abstracts for a two-part roundtable series on southern modernist women writers and the topographies of the street for the Modernist Studies Association (MSA) conference in Brooklyn, NY, on October 22-25, 2020. This two-part series goes with the MSA conference theme of "the street" and is intended to spark conversation and collaboration among Welty, O'Connor, McCullers, Porter, Petrie, Chopin, and Hurston scholars, among others, about the innovations and interventions of southern modernist women writers in creating street scenes, situations, and characters. Interested parties should send a 300 word abstract and a short bio to Isadora Wagner, Carson McCullers Society President (isadora.wagner@westpoint.edu) and Sarah-Marie Horning, Society Vice President (S.D.HORNING@tcu.edu), by January 5, 2020.
