Kodat Publishes Faulkner Essay, Speaks at Syracuse University

Posted August 3, 2010

Professor of English and American Studies Catherine Gunther Kodat has published an essay, "Unhistoricizing Faulkner," in Faulkner's Sexualities (Jackson: University Press of Mississippi, 2010).

The volume contains the proceedings of the 37th annual Faulkner and Yoknapatawpha conference, held in 2007. Kodat's essay, which opens the volume, is based on her plenary talk there, an exploration of the questions queer theory and sexuality studies pose for the analysis of Faulkner's work. The 2007 conference marks the second time Kodat has been invited to give a plenary address there.

Kodat also gave a talk, "Combat Cultural: The Arts of the Cold War," at Syracuse University in April, appearing at the invitation of the English Graduate Organization. Kodat's lecture was drawn from her current work in progress, "Don't Act": The Metapolitics of Cold War Culture.
