Van Veen, do in Ada. Papers discussing the author’s role in the
relationship between art and reality in Ada will be considered. Please
send abstracts (as MSWord attachments) to Sarah Kingston,

Please include with your abstract:

The complete Call for Papers is available at www.nemla.org.
Interested participants may submit abstracts to more than one NeMLA

at a creative session or participate in a roundtable.
