Carson McCullers Centre (Columbus, USA)
John Cabot University Professor of English, Dr. Carlos Dews, has been invited to deliver a lecture at a conference being held at the Carson McCullers Center for Writers and Musicians at Columbus State University in Carson McCullers hometown of Columbus, Georgia.
The conference is in celebration of what would have been Carson McCullers 94th Birthday and will be held in February 2011. Dews served as the founding director of the McCullers Center from 2002-2004. The official name of the conference is Carson McCullers: An Interdisciplinary Conference and 94th Birthday Celebration and is described by Cathy Fussell, the McCullers Center's current director, as "the first conference dedicated exclusively to Carson McCullers since Columbus College (Columbus, Georgia) sponsored Reflections on Carson McCullers in 1987."
Dews was very pleased by the invitation and said "I am humbled by the invitation to deliver a lecture at the McCullers Conference. I served as the Founding Director for the McCullers Center and being asked to return to deliver a lecture at a conference sponsored by the Center is touching. I look forward to reuniting with the friends I made when I was at the Center and to seeing how the Center has continued to develop since I was last there."
