 Pat Conroy Symposium

The Pat Conroy symposium will feature a lineup of distinguished speakers participating in panel-style discussions of Conroy’s work, his life and legacy, and his connections to The Citadel, the Lowcountry, and the State of South Carolina. Shannon Faulkner, whose courageous decision to break The Citadel's tradition of gender segregation opened doors for and inspired a great many young women, has already agreed to speak at the symposium, in part because of Conroy's long-term support of her efforts. 

 In addition to a keynote talk by Conroy scholar and biographer Dr. Catherine Seltzer, the symposium will include several panel discussions, most featuring distinguished speakers and at least one featuring Citadel students (cadets and graduate students). Because a wide range of writers, academics, and general readers admire Conroy's work, we will coordinate a lineup of speakers that should appeal to everyone from students to faculty and staff to members of the broader South Carolina community. 

Confirmed participants include Shannon Faulkner; Catherine Seltzer; Cassandra King (best-selling novelist and Conroy's widow); Joe Riley (former Charleston mayor and Citadel faculty member); Nathalie Dupree (author and celebrity chef); John Warley (author and Citadel classmate of Conroy’s); Kirk Curnutt (Troy University professor and Conroy scholar); Alexander Macaulay (Western Carolina University professor, author of Marching in Step: Masculinity, Citizenship, and The Citadel in Post World War II America, and Citadel alumnus); Brian Hicks (Charleston Post & Courier newspaper columnist); and Jonathan Haupt (Director of the Pat Conroy Literary Center). 

March 3, Time TBD, Bond Hall
