Reconsidering Flannery O'Connor

A four-week institute for twenty-five college and university faculty to examine Flannery O'Connor's work through various critical and disciplinary perspectives.

Georgia College presents “Reconsidering Flannery O’Connor,” a four-week institute for twenty-five college and university teachers, in July 2014. Against the quaint, historic backdrop of O’Connor’s alma mater in Milledgeville, Summer Scholars will dive into the culture and environment that inspired O’Connor, examining thorny and teachable issues of religion, race, violence and human consciousness, and cultural conflicts in her work. Distinguished scholars will lead students through a variety of seminars, lectures, and hands-on work in GC’s O’Connor Collection. The institute will stimulate Scholars toward their career goals, in part by supplying them with key primary and secondary texts for vibrant teaching and up-to-date scholarship; support them as they begin or improve their teaching of O’Connor; and inspire them to produce internet postings, conference papers, articles, and books about O’Connor and her contemporary relevance. Project period will be Oct. 1, 2013-Dec. 31, 2014.
