About the Stephen Crane Society

Founded by Crane scholar Paul Sorrentino in 1990, the Stephen Crane Society is devoted to research on and discussion about the author. The society grew out of a Crane conference sponsored by Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University (Virginia Tech) and held in Blacksburg in 1989. The society is officially associated with the American Literature Association (ALA) and holds its annual meeting, sponsors panels, and elects its officers at the ALA conference in late May/early June of each year. Its international membership includes specialists and nonspecialists.

The society sponsors Stephen Crane Studies, a journal of notes, queries, bibiographical material, and reviews. The journal is published semiannually in the spring and fall. Since 1992 it has been published at Virginia Tech.
