2013 Annual SAMLA Conference-Cultures, Contexts, Images, and Texts: Making Meaning in Print, Digital, and Networked Worlds

The South Atlantic Modern Language Association welcomes proposals for full panels or calls for papers for the 85th Annual SAMLA Conference, which will be held in Atlanta, Georgia, November 8-10, 2013. Proposals supporting the special focus of the conference, "Cultures, Contexts, Images, and Texts: Making Meaning in Print, Digital, and Networked Worlds" are especially encouraged. Sessions, however, may also be of a more general nature or concentrate on a specific topic relating to teaching, literary and linguistic scholarship in the humanities, and modern languages. Session length is 90-minutes; session format options include: round table or discussion panels, working paper sessions, seminar or workshop sessions, traditional paper presentations, or clusters of three sessions.

Please submit a 300-word session proposal or call for papers that includes the session title, name of the chair, academic affiliation, and chair email address by May 30, 2013, to samla@gsu.edu. Session chairs must be members of SAMLA by June 30, 2013. Additional information about the convention can be found at samla.memberclicks.net. Individual paper proposals are not accepted, but a list of call for papers is available on the SAMLA website.
