NeMLA is pleased to announce the addition of a Poster Session April 4 to the 2014 convention in Harrisburg, PA, April 3-6.
This new session allows an opportunity for scholars to submit proposals to present visual representations of their research. While all topics will be considered, special consideration will be given to submissions incorporating this year's convention emphasis on drama and creative writing.
NeMLA has a long commitment to supporting the primary research of its members. Likewise, NeMLA recognizes the significant contribution of visual presentations to the body of academic study of literature and other linguistic constructions, and their capacity to relay complex information in ways that text alone cannot. The format of this session will allow presenters to display their work in a casual setting and engage in informal conversations with convention participants regarding their work at a designated place and time.
Please submit a visual project proposal (250-500 words) indicating the focus of the presentation and its relevance to the research topic to Bill Sizemore, Poster Session Chair, at by January 10, 2014 ("NeMLA Poster in Subject Line) in order to be considered for this session.

Accepted presenters will need to register at the auditor rate by January 31, 2014. Due to hotel constraints, access to technology may be limited to that provided by the presenters themselves. Easels and high-top tables will be available on request. Please contact the session chair with any specific requests, questions, or concerns.
