This pedagogical roundtable welcomes proposals that offer innovations for teaching Fitzgerald's many works. How does his literature speak to the Jazz Age and major moments in United States and global history? How can works such as The Great Gatsby clarify studies of ecology, urban environments, photography, and other topics? Proposals that consider the author’s lesser researched works are encouraged.

Submit 300-word abstracts by September 30th with a free account at https://www.cfplist.com/nemla/Home/S/17003.

This session coincides with the Northeast Modern Language Association opening address with Stewart O'Nan, author of the Fitzgerald biofiction West of Sunset (2015). For more information about the opportunity to interview O'Nan for potential publication, please apply here before September 30: www.buffalo.edu/nemla/convention/initiatives/NeMLAReads.html
