The 2014 NeMLA convention continues the Association's tradition of sharing innovative scholarship in an engaging and generative location.

The 45th Annual Convention will feature approximately 350 sessions, as well as dynamic speakers and cultural events. Interested participants may submit abstracts to more than one NeMLA session; however, panelists can only present one paper (panel or seminar).
