2023 Quarry Farm Symposium

The Center for Mark Twain Studies at Elmira College is hosting its annual Quarry Farm Symposium from Friday, October 6 and Saturday, October 7, 2023, organized around the theme of Mark Twain: Invention, Technology, and Science Fiction. The year’s Keynote Address will be presented by Sheila Williams, the multiple Hugo award-winning editor of Asimov’s Science Fiction magazine. The annual symposium gathers scholars from various fields around a theme related to Mark Twain studies or the nineteenth-century more broadly and is held at the historic Quarry Farm site, where Twain wrote his most famous works during summer stays with his wife’s family in Elmira, New York.
