As an affiliate-organization of the Modern Language Association (MLA), the College English Association is pleased to sponsor a session at the 2020 MLA convention, January 9-12, in Seattle.

CEA is now soliciting proposals for our annual MLA session, which includes but is not limited to the following: a presentation panel; a roundtable; workshops; or special events.

Additional guidelines for sessions may be found at https://www.mla.org/Convention/Planning-a-Convention-Session/Procedures-for-Organizing-Convention-Meetings.

CEA Board members will carefully consider all submissions and then vote to choose the most-engaging proposal. Once selected, the organizer(s) must advertise the session nationally through the UPenn Call for Papers (CFP) list and at least one other specialized listserv.

Please send a proposal – written in the form of a call for papers – to Lee Anna Maynard, at lamaynard@augusta.edu, by January 15, 2019 (extended deadline). All participants in the CEA session at the MLA convention must be (or become) members of both organizations by early 2020.
