Midwestern Conference on Literature, Language, and Media (MCLLM)
will be held April 1-2, 2011

Dr. Emily Auerbach, University of Wisconsin-Madison,
author of Maestros, Dilettantes, and Philistines (1989) and Searching for Jane Austen (2004); Director of the UW Odyssey Project; and Project Director of the "Courage to Write" radio series.

"To withdraw myself from myself has ever been my sole, my entire, my sincere motive in scribbling at all." —Lord Byron
Writing about lives, writing that lives, or writing that comes to us live from an immediate, connected source shapes how we as scholars and teachers conceive of ourselves and others. Writing works within and out of academia to continually (re)define what is and is not important, what is and is not canonized, and what is and is not ignored within many discourse communities.
