Call for Papers – Second Biennial Walker Percy Conference at Loyola University New Orleans

When they write the history of Korrektiv Press, the Kollektiv’s involvement with the Walker Percy Center will surely occupy a pivotal position. From the never-written memoir of our visit to the opening of the Center, to our grand entrance upon the Percy landscape at the Center’s first conference, to what really ought to be the Kollektiv’s first-ever universal convocation, the fortunes of the one have been rather fancifully intertwined with those of the other. Gerasene ’13 in New Orleans. Rally, Kollektiv, rally!


  1. Best. Tag. Ever.

  2. Angelico Nguyen, Esq., OP says:

    And I intend to speak on Walker Percy and David Foster Wallace.

    Feel the synergy.

    • Matthew Lickona says:

      Will there be footnotes?

      • Angelico Nguyen, Esq., OP says:

        Probably, if you don’t use up Korrektiv’s footnote quota; I’m considering a small-print digression on the morality/ethics of eating crawfish.

        • Matthew Lickona says:

          Morality/ethics? Just start with technique and work from there.

          • Angelico Nguyen, Esq., OP says:

            Spoken like a true thrall of the Iron Crown.

            • Matthew Lickona says:

              I should mention here that technique is tied to morality, as my wife declined to wear the “peel me, pinch me, eat me” shirts favored by some of the waitstaff at the Cajun restaurant where she slung beers and poured shots for KC med students.

              • Angelico Nguyen, Esq., OP says:

                Ah, now I see. Not this, then, after all.

                And yes, good on The Wife — a sign of contradiction and a light for the upright, God bless her. The invitations and/or imperatives cataloged on those shirts are to be made only to one’s spouse.

    “The Lonely Self: Man (and Woman) Lost in the Cosmos”

    That parenthetical is tempting.

  4. The Duffer says:

    Expat, will you write a paper and let me present every other line of it?

  5. I would speak, but the women would go crazy. Would tear my close off, and all that.

  6. Jonathan Potter says:

    As my daughter would say:

    I don’t like this. I love it.
