The Stephen Graham Jones Society is inviting participants for an American Literature Association panel for the 2023 meeting comprised of emerging and established scholars who have interest and/or experience with the recent and ongoing scholarship and/or pedagogical value of Jones' ever-expanding body of writing. We are seeking proposals that examine any aspect of Jones’ literary, philosophical, cultural or historical engagements as reflected in his novels or short fiction. Proposed presentations on his more recent experimentations in genre and horror are especially welcomed. 


Please submit abstracts of 200-250 words, along with information on any relevant publications to Dr. Billy J. Stratton (University of Denver) at by January 30, 2023.

The deadline for proposals is January 30, 2023. For further information or specific questions, please consult the ALA website at or contact the conference director, Professor Olivia Carr Edenfield, at or the Executive Director of the ALA, Professor Alfred Bendixen of Princeton University, at
