CALL FOR PAPERS

The Stephen Crane Society invites papers and proposals for two panels at the
2006 American Literature Association convention on May 25-28, 2006, in San
Francisco.
The first session will be devoted to "ethnic" characters in the broadest
sense, his representation of people of African-American, Mexican, Cuban,
Irish, Swedish, and Jewish descent, to name only a few of the groups he
writes about. His fiction indicates much about the diversity and complexity
of American society at the turn of the century.

The second panel will be open to all topics, including his verse.
