Faculty Lecture Series: Dr. D. Matthew Ramsey "Taking Popular Culture Seriously, or, How I Learned to Love "Hack" Faulkner" Online

Dr. Ramsey examines the work of renowned, Nobel Prize-winning Southern author William Faulkner and his intersections with popular culture. To illustrate issues regarding the canon, literary snobbery, or assumptions about Southern white male authors, Dr. Ramsey employs examples of film, novels, and other works, including a Saturday Evening Post all-male war story transformed into a Joan Crawford melodrama, a “scandalous” Pre-Code Hollywood film about rape and murder, and The Long, Hot Summer and the queerness of 1950s Southern melodramas. 

D. Matthew Ramsey is an Associate Professor of English and chair of the Department of English, Communications and Media at Salve Regina University. He received his PhD in Literature and Film Studies from The Ohio State University, and he has published widely on William Faulkner’s work in journals such as The Faulkner Journal and Mississippi Quarterly, and in collections of essays including Faulkner and Material Culture, William Faulkner: Critical Insights, A Critical Companion to William Faulkner, and Queering the South on Screen.
