The Northeast Modern Languages Association (NeMLA) is now accepting session proposals (not individual papers just yet) for next year’s NeMLA convention in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania from April 3-6 2014.

We are particularly interested in sessions on literatures by and about people of color. These under-represented fields include, but are not limited to, African American Literature, Caribbean Literature, African Literature, Native American Literature and Latino Literatures. Single-authored panels that are relevant, such as those on writers from Pennsylvania (such as David Bradley, Major Jackson, and John Edgar Wideman) are especially encouraged.

Please do consider submitting a session proposal for the 45th annual NeMLA convention, which has an April 15th deadline http://nemla.org/convention/2014/proposal_form.html. Our goal is to make the convention a very diverse one but we can only achieve this with your help.
