Society for the Study of Midwestern Literature
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, January 25, 2019

Have you taught a place-based course in literature, history, American studies, or the humanities more generally? Have you focused on place in courses on Latinx, African American, Native American, or queer studies? What design choices did you make when creating your syllabus? If you were to redesign the documents for this course, what would you change?

I invite participants for a poster session in document design for place-based studies to take place at the 49th annual symposium of the Society for the Study of Midwestern Literature (SSML) in East Lansing, Michigan, on May 16-18, 2019.
