Please consider becoming a member or supporting our efforts in encouraging interest in John Dos Passos scholarship. The society promotes opportunities for presentations and publications. Your membership or donation will go toward funding our newsletter and the coordination of the biennial John Dos Passos Society conference.

Individual Membership

Membership is $50 per year ($25 for graduate students) and runs August to July. Your membership fee will pay for our yearly newsletter "The Speech of the People" and will help fund our upcoming John Dos Passos conferences. Two other ways to support the society are through the Graduate Student Travel Grant (which will help graduate students attend conferences) or through a standard donation.
