Registration Reminder and Schedule Information

Remember to register by July 15 for the 2017 Cormac McCarthy Conference taking place in Austin, Texas!  You can register here.  After July 15, registration rates will increase by $25.

We are busy building the final schedule, which we’ll post soon.  Because of the number of excellent paper proposals we received, we will likely begin on the evening of Thursday, August 31st with a welcome and opening panel.  Panels will then run all day Friday and Saturday and conclude in the mid-afternoon on Sunday, September 3rd.  We’ll have a reception on Friday evening and a catered lunch on Saturday, which will also be the occasion for our keynote address by Don Graham.

Remember, too, to make your hotel reservations! The conference will take place in the downtown Hilton hotel (500 E. 4th St.) in Austin, right in the midst of some of Austin’s best restaurants and coffee shops—not to mention other landmarks like the Alamo Drafthouse theater, the Mexic-Arte Museum, the Elephant Room jazz club, Iron Works BBQ, and Voodoo Doughnut.  The Hilton conference rate for single and double rooms (which is available from Aug. 31 through Sept. 3) is $189/night. When you’re ready to reserve a room, you can call the Hilton at 512-482-8000 and give the group code “CMC,” or you can go to this website:

We hope to see you soon!
