Call for Papers: “Disclosing the Secret in Eudora Welty’s Fiction and Photography”

Aug. 6, 2002

The Eudora Welty Society is calling for papers to be delivered at its panel “Disclosing the Secret in Eudora Welty’s Fiction and Photography” at the American Literature Association Conference in Boston May 22-25, 2003.

“The future story writer in the child I was must have taken unconscious note and stored it away then; one secret is liable to be revealed in the place of another that is harder to tell, and the substitute secret when nakedly exposed is often the more appalling.”

—Eudora Welty, “Listening,” One Writer’s Beginnings

The topic refers to several ideas of the secret:

  • to Welty’s patterns of revealing and exposing while holding back and obscuring
  • to her interest in revelation of the unspoken and to the images repeatedly associated with the revelation
  • to her discussions of and uses of mystery
  • to specific secrets in specific fictions and/or the photography.

Send proposals of 500 words to by November 11, 2002. Expressions of interest are welcome ASAP.
