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 hosted its second one-day colloquium May 30th, 2019, at 11 Bedford Square, London, Room 1-01. The keynote address, ‘”We’re Going to Have a Town”: Anthropology, Racial Etiquette, and Faulkner’s Jefferson’, was given by Dr Gavan Lennon of Canterbury Christ Church University (author of Living Jim Crow: The Segregated Town in Mid-Twentieth Century Southern Fiction [Forthcoming, Edinburgh University Press, 2020]).
