Registration is now open for the 2006 Fleur Cowles Flair Symposium, The Sense of Our Time: Norman Mailer and America in Conflict. The symposium will take place November 9-11, 2006.

Speakers at the symposium will use Mailer's works as starting points for the exploration of the cultural conflicts that confronted post-WWII America, from civil rights to war, from sexual politics to the rise of New Journalism. Speakers include Pulitzer Prize-winning author David Oshinsky of The University of Texas at Austin, Sam Tanenhaus of the New York Times, Morris Dickstein of the CUNY Center for the Humanities, and Norman Mailer. The Flair Symposium, held biennially at the Ransom Center, honors the ideals set forth by Fleur Cowles and her landmark Flair magazine.
