Faulkner Studies in the UK is an emerging scholarly research network dedicated to the work of American modernist author William Faulkner.

The Network is supported by the Department of English at Royal Holloway, University of London. The Network has also benefitted from the generous support of the British Association for American Studies (BAAS), and the US Embassy, London. For more information, please see our About page.

The Network will host its third colloquium May 28th, 2020, via an online conferencing platform. Having taken into account the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we have decided that it would be in the best interests of our applicants to cancel the event from occuring face to face. However, the event itself is still going ahead as planned.

The keynote address will be given by Professor Jay Watson, Howry Professor of Faulkner Studies and author of William Faulkner and the Faces of Modernity (Oxford University Press, 2019). Professor Watson’s speech is entitled ‘Fossil-Fuel Faulkner: Energy, Modernity, and the US South’.

Abstracts are due April 17th, 2020. Please see the Call for Papers for further information.
