Membership Information

History of the Society

On May 23, 2003, the Charles Johnson Society was founded at the annual conference of the American Literature Association in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The society’s goal is to stimulate and encourage interest in philosophical fiction—in particular the works of Charles Johnson—through annual meetings, a web site, a newsletter, and other activities. In 2004 the society will meet at the American Literature Association Conference to be held at the Hyatt Regency, Embarcadero Center, San Francisco, May 27-30, 2004. (Members of the society will receive a call for papers for the society’s panel in San Francisco in Fall, 2003.)

We look forward to many years of stimulating discussion and hope that you will join us as a member of the society. To become a member, simply complete the form below and mail it with your membership check to Dr. Linda Selzer, Treasurer (address below).
