Please join us for NeMLA's 51st Annual Convention at the Boston Marriott Copley Place, conveniently located in the heart of the city. The theme of NeMLA 2020 is "Shaping and Sharing Identities: Spaces, Places, Languages, and Cultures" — a topic embracing the many facets that define each and every human being across cultures and languages, as well as the many ways in which we interact with each other in today’s rapidly changing global world.
SAMLA’s conference theme Languages: Power, Identity, Relationships calls for us to explore the power and impact of language. This panel looks to examine language, specifically considering pedagogical approaches to teaching various aspects of language and the power of language in literature classes, from introductory survey classes to comprehensive seminars.
Topics include, but are not limited, to the following:

Lehigh University’s Department of English is thrilled to announce its annual Literature and Social Justice conference, “Performance and Social Justice,” to be held November 1-2, 2019 at Lehigh University in Bethlehem, Pa. We welcome proposals from Master’s students, Ph.D. students, recent graduates, and independent scholars working on performance studies, broadly conceived. We hope to address a variety of questions about the intersection of performance and social justice. What is the relationship between performance and justice? In what ways does a certain text/character/literary moment, etc. perform social justice? How can performance become a form of activism and/or advocacy?
