Session Proposals due April 15, 2009 for 41st NeMLA Convention; Montreal, Quebec; April 7-11, 2010
Experience the lively and intimate exchange that NeMLA offers at its 41st annual convention in downtown Montreal, sponsored by McGill University. Featuring over 320 panels, the 2009 convention in Boston richly represented all the subject areas of the modern languages and literatures, covering a broad spectrum of scholarship and advancing innovative approaches to teaching.
Both Montreal (with its Latin quarter, Little Italy, and Chinatown) and its respected university boast a diverse population, mixing the old and the new. Vieux-Montréal offers European charm with its cafés, boutiques, fresh markets, and artists, while the vibrant downtown includes all of the sights and sounds a major city can offer: museums, shopping, pubs, and restaurants.
NeMLA is a member-driven convention, accepting session proposals (panel, roundtable, creative session, seminar) in the following areas:
French and Francophone
World Literatures (non-Western European)
Please extend the conversation in these areas. To propose a session, submit a panel proposal online at www.nemla.org by April 15, 2009. (2009 membership is required.) The full Call for Papers will be available online in June 2009. The abstract deadline for most sessions will be September 30, 2009.
The convention will be held at the Hilton Bonaventure ($159 CN). Don't forget your passport application.
