Proposal deadline extended to January 20, 2017
Arkansas State University will host the third annual “Dylan Day” as part of the 23rd Annual Delta Symposium and the Delta Flix Film & Media Festival. These events will be held on the A-State Campus in Jonesboro, Arkansas, April 5-8, 2017. Presented by A-State’s Department of English, Philosophy, and World Languages in the College of Liberal Arts and Communication, the 2017 Symposium’s theme is “Caring for the Community.”
“Dylan Day” will occur on April 8, 2017 and is devoted to scholarship connecting 2016 Noble Prize winner for literature Bob Dylan with the Delta. This special feature is the brainchild of the late Dr. Frances Hunter. Dr. Hunter was Associate Professor of English at Arkansas State University and a noted Dylan scholar. She recently edited Professing Dylan, a collection of fourteen essays by professors who teach Dylan’s work in college and university classes, and the 2017 “Dylan Day” will be held in her honor.
We have extended the call for papers for “Dylan Day” to January 20, 2017. The details for these activities are contained in the Delta Symposium’s Web site.
Please contact Dr. Gregory Hansen (firstname.lastname@example.org) for additional information. Also, please forward this announcement to others who may be interested in participating. For more information on the Delta Symposium and the Delta Flix Film and Media Festival, see the following Web sites.
