CFP: Stephen Crane Panels at ALA 2013

The Stephen Crane Society will sponsor two sessions at the American Literature Association Conference at the Westin Copley Place, Boston, on May 23-26, 2013. All topics are welcome. Here, for example, are a few suggestions:
· Crane’s depiction of war

· Crane and the arts (e. g., painting, photography, music)

· Crane’s depiction of the city

· Crane’s poetry

· Crane’s journalism

· the Sullivan County tales and sketches

· the Western stories

· the Whilomville stories

· one of Crane’s lesser-known novels (The Third Violet, Active Service, or The O’Ruddy)

· Crane’s depiction of women

· Crane’s relationship with other writers, e. g., Garland, Howells, Conrad, or Frederic

Presentations will be limited to 20 minutes.

You may also propose a roundtable discussion on, say, teaching Crane’s short stories.
