The 15th Biennial Jack London Society Symposium will be held November 5–8, 2020 at The Sonoma Valley Inn & Krug Event Center in Sonoma, California. The organizers encourage participants to experiment with innovative, alternative, and established theoretical approaches to the life and work of Jack London. We welcome papers and panel submissions on any aspect of the author’s life and work. Proposals for roundtables or teaching presentations are encouraged, especially those that connect London with other writers and artists. Symposium activities will include a tour of nearby Jack London State Historic Park and its new museum exhibits in the House of Happy Walls https://jacklondonpark.com/. Attendees can also enjoy a special screening of the 2019 film Martin Eden, directed by Pietro Marcello, and a Jack London-themed boating excursion on San Francisco Bay.
