CFP: “Hollywood F. Scott Fitzgerald” and “New Approaches to Teaching Fitzgerald” (Northeast MLA, April 2018, Pittsburgh), submission deadline 9/30/17

The Last Tycoon is out on Amazon–so why not submit an abstract about it?

While F. Scott Fitzgerald’s short stories and The Great Gatsby continue to dominate scholarship and teaching, these conference calls for papers look at a wider scope of his literary output, including the stories and scripts he developed while in Hollywood.

The CFP “New Approaches to Teaching Fitzgerald” welcomes a wide range of proposals. And the scope of “Hollywood F. Scott Fitzgerald” is broad enough to focus on multiple ways in which Fitzgerald and California intersect: film adaptations, the place of Hollywood as a setting in his fiction like The Last Tycoon, and his last years living in the state.

300-word abstracts for “New Approaches to Teaching Fitzgerald” and “Hollywood F. Scott Fitzgerald” are due September 30th at those links. Please consider sharing the full CFPs below–and also consider submitting to NeMLA’s special event featuring F. Scott Fitzgerald biofiction novelist Stewart O’Nan!
