Call for Submissions
Call for paper: Aletria v. 28, n.3 (2018) – Early Modern English Literature
Early modern English authors (c. 1453-1789) wrote in a period of unprecedented national and international political, cultural, social, religious, and scientific changes. Literature in English across a range of traditional and alternative genres reflected, resisted, and redefined these developments. We invite papers that identify and analyse the many forms of evidence of the literary engagement with transformative issues, events, and axes within and outside of the British Isles.
Editors of the number: Elizabeth Sauer (Brock University, Canadá) and Luiz Fernando Ferreira Sá (UFMG)

NeMLA is turning 50! Please come and help us celebrate our Anniversary Convention at the Gaylord National in Washington DC, March 21–24, 2019.
The theme of our 2019 convention is "Transnational Spaces: Intersections of Cultures, Languages, and Peoples." It aims to challenge traditional notions of history, territory, and identity and to recognize the complex processes of trans-culturation that have characterized modernity.
As the capital of the United States, Washington, DC, plays an important role in shaping both national and global history. It is vital that NeMLA bring its convention to this seat of power in order to address the ongoing challenges we face in producing a world that values diversity, honesty, scholarship, and justice.
