As a result of the delays and disruptions of the spring, the deadline for all MMLA submissions has been extended to May 31. 

The Comparative Literature section of the MMLA invites proposals for papers that engage with this year's conference theme, "Cultures of Collectivity." Papers addressing the following suggested MMLA topics from a transnational, cross-cultural, and/or interdisciplinary perspective would be particularly relevant:

  • collective movements throughout the history of art and culture;
  • the formation of communities through bibliography and scholarship;
  • language communities; cultures of diaspora;
  • academic communities

Please submit abstracts to Fontaine Lien at fontaine.lien@valpo.edu by May 31, 2020.
