Upcoming Conferences

“The Continuous Thread of Revelation: Eudora Welty Reconsidered”
An International Welty Society Conference, Charleston, S.C. February 21 to 23, 2019

The Eudora Welty Society is excited to host its conference for the first time in Charleston, a city Welty visited and photographed. We invite colleagues in Southern Studies, American Studies, and all related fields of study to join us in investigations of this renowned Mississippi writer, her legacy, and her national and international reputation. This conference, held at the College of Charleston, will examine Eudora Welty’s fiction, photography, letters, memoir, archival documents, essays, reviews, interviews, films, and more. Along with presentations of scholarly work, the conference will also offer a Charleston Writers panel, receptions, literary and historical tours, a dramatic reading of a Welty work performed by Welty scholars, plus free time in the evenings to enjoy Charleston on your own.

"The events in our lives happen in a sequence in time, but in their significance to ourselves they find their own order, a timetable not necessarily — perhaps not possibly — chronological. The time as we know it subjectively is often the chronology that stories and novels follow: it is the continuous thread of revelation.” Eudora Welty, One Writer’s Beginnings
