The International Theodore Dreiser Society will sponsor two panels at the American Literature Association Conference in San Francisco on May 24-27, 2012.
Panel One: Dreiser and Other Writers
Papers are invited that consider Dreiserís work in relation to that of other writers, including but not limited to examinations of Dreiserís work as an influence on or influenced by other writers, Dreiser and his contemporaries, later twentieth- and early twenty-first-century writersí literary debts to Dreiser, Dreiserís impact on literary movements and traditions, or the relationship of Dreiserís work to writing in fields other than literature.

Given the centennial anniversary in 2012 of the publication of Dreiserís The Financier, proposals might include (but are not limited to) considerations of money, greed, capitalism, business ethics, market forces, or related issues in this and other Dreiser works.
Presentations will be limited to 20 minutes.
