The Ninth International F. Scott Fitzgerald Conference will
be held in London, from 8 through 14 July 2007. Senate
House, near Russell Square in Bloomsbury, will be the
conference center where panels and plenary sessions will be
held.

Proposals are invited on any aspect of Fitzgerald studies.
We would, however, particularly welcome such subjects as
Fitzgerald’s reputation in England, the influence of British
writers on his work, including Keats, Conrad, and the
Victorian novelists, and British writers of the 1920s whom
Fitzgerald admired.

One-paragraph proposals should be sent to Kirk Curnutt, via
email attachment, at kcurnutt_at_troy.edu.

Tonya Krouse

CFP for Panel on Doris Lessing and Canon Formation for the Second
International Doris Lessing Conference, Leeds Metropolitan University,
U.K, to be held July 6-8, 2007.

Proposed Panel: "Putting the 'Woman of Letters' in Her Place: Canon
Formation and the Lessing Canon"

In the past 30 years, the canon of "great literature" has expanded,
shifted, and changed. No longer primarily a list of privileged, white,
male authors, the canon as we know it in the 21st century includes
writers who represent a range of identity categories. Spaces have been
carved out for women, gay, lesbian, working-class, postcolonial, and
multicultural writers.
