Theodore Dreiser Panels at American Literature Association Conference, Boston, May 21-24, 2015

full name / name of organization: 
International Theodore Dreiser Society

The International Theodore Dreiser Society will sponsor two panels at the American Literature Association Conference in Boston, MA on May 21-24, 2015.

Panel One: Open Topic
• Papers are invited on any topic concerning Dreiser.

Panel Two: Dreiser and Gender
• Papers are invited on topics concerning gender and sexuality in Dreiser's life and work. Over the past two decades, gender and sexuality have become particularly crucial issues in Dreiser studies. We welcome papers that contribute to the complex, provocative dialogue about these issues.

Presentations will be limited to 20 minutes. Panelists are not required to be members of the International Theodore Dreiser Society.

Please email an abstract (250-350 words) for either of the two panels, as well as a brief curriculum vita, to the program chair by 15 January 2015.
