David Palmer, Conference Panel Coordinator, The Eugene O’Neill Society:

The Eugene O’Neill Society plans to have two panels at the American Literature Association conference in May 2018. Each 75-minute session will contain three 15-minute papers (roughly 2000-2500 words) and an open, half-hour discussion period with the panel’s audience. Both panels are open to papers on the broad topic of current approaches to the works and life of Eugene O’Neill.

Suitable topics for these papers include but are not limited to the following:

  • Analyses of individual plays or sets of plays by O’Neill

  • Differing interpretations of O’Neill’s works as they are approached from various analytical perspectives

  • Reviews of specific productions of O’Neill’s plays and the insights these particular interpretations provide

  • The ways in which O’Neill’s plays reflect themes and trends in American culture

  • O’Neill’s place in the development of American drama

Thank you for considering participation in these panels.

David Palmer
Conference Panel Coordinator, The Eugene O’Neill Society
