Is there any way to convert my public key to associate it with my new email address, or do I need to generate a new public key?

Take a look at the manpage -- you want to "add a userid" and "delete a
userid" -- delete the old one,  and add the new one (might be safer to do
it in the reverse order).  I think these are done via pgp -ke and pgp -kr.

Before you do anything,  back up your keyring incase it gets screwed up
