Since 1996 the society has been a member of the American Literature Association, at whose annual meetings they usually host two panels, as well as society meetings and possible screenings or roundtables. Click to see an archive of all the panels we have presented at ALA: here. If you are interested in organizing panels for regular conferences, such as ALA, ATHE, MLA, CDC, NEMLA or American Studies etc., please let any one of our officers know of your interest.
There have also been occasional special conferences, such as the one at Kean University in February 1999 which discussed the influence of the Holocaust on Miller's work, and was organized to coincide with a performance of Playing For Time. We returned to Kean in Fall 2010 for an American Drama conference built around their production of Thornton Wilder's Our Town, which was also a tremendous success.
