Teaching Faulkner Newsletter Archives

The Teaching Faulkner Newsletter is published twice annually by the Center for Faulkner Studies. Brief articles and notes, news items, queries and suggestions for teaching Faulkner's works at the high school and/or college level are welcomed. Subscriptions are $6.00/year.

To submit an article for consideration, please send a manuscript AND disk copy (MS Word, any version) of the article to The Center for Faulkner Studies, Southeast Missouri State University, Cape Girardeau, MO 63701. 


 

The articles in the web archive have appeared in past issues of the Teaching Faulkner Newsletter. They are arranged alphabetically by the title of the primary text discussed in the article. Other articles, such as Joseph Blotner's recollections of working with Faulkner's biography and perspectives on teaching Faulkner in other contexts, such as with Civil War history or using Faulkner to teach medical students, are listed under Faulkner Miscellany

The Teaching Faulkner sections  of our website are updated periodically--so bookmark this site and check back often!
