CFP: “The Midwest in the Time of F. Scott Fitzgerald”

14th International F. Scott Fitzgerald Society Conference

St. Paul, Minnesota

June 25 – July 1, 2017

This call for papers solicits paper proposals for a panel that will explore the Midwest that F. Scott Fitzgerald (1896-1940) grew up in or experienced on return visits in the hopes of better contextualizing and understanding the greater regional elements that shaped or may have influenced his writing. We particularly encourage paper proposals and presentations from scholars outside the field of literature who may be working on historical or cultural studies relevant to Minnesota and the Midwest in the early twentieth century. Collaborative or interdisciplinary projects are of interest as well. If interested, please submit a 250 word proposal (noting any audio/visual needs) and a brief C.V. or biographical statement to Sara Kosiba at no later than Thursday, October 20th, 2016.
