We are now accepting proposals for the Practical Approaches to Teaching Literature through Travel and Off-Campus Study session at the 2013 Rocky Mountain MLA Convention. We welcome presentations on all types of off-campus literature study, from local field trips incorporated into traditional courses to intensive summer or semester abroad programs. You may focus on any aspect of the off-campus experience, for example, the planning and permissions stage, tips for teaching in the field, or strategies for evaluating and justifying completed activities or programs. To apply, please send a short abstract to Marla Arbach (marla.arbach@gmail.com) by March 1, 2013. We will notify all applicants of the outcome of their application by March 15.
