“Walker Percy: Networking, Distancing, and More”

Papers for this traditional session may focus on any aspect of Walker Percy’s life and works, either fiction or non-fiction. Especially welcome are topics relevant to the SAMLA 93 conference theme: Social Networks, Social Distances. How are Percy’s novel’s characters networked and connected, or conversely, distanced and alienated, whether socially or other ways, such as existentially? Percy also wrote extensively on the human capacity for language, or “symbol-mongering,” as he called it. Percy’s semiotic viewed human communication as a “tetradic event,” one that is necessarily a social event, requiring a community of speakers, with these themes pervasive in his novels as well as his philosophy, his scientific research, and his other interdisciplinary research.

Please send 300-word abstracts on these topics or any aspect of Percy’s fiction or non-fiction by July 1, 2021, to Dr. Karey Perkins, South Carolina State University, at kareyperkins@gmail.com. Please also include a brief bio and any A/V requirements in your abstract.
