English IV: 19th Century British Literature Panel

updated: 
Tuesday, January 30, 2018 - 4:01pm
Courtney Simpkins / South Central MLA 2018
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, March 31, 2018

The 75th annual South Central Modern Language Association convention will be held in San Antonio, Texas from October 11-14 at the historic Menger Hotel on the River Walk, right next door to the Alamo. San Antonio is the perfect city for this year’s theme, “Crossroads of Cultures.” Through the art, architecture and design of the city, it is evident that there were, and are, different cultures crossing paths and influencing each other, now and over the past several centuries. San Antonio is a cultural kaleidoscope that began with the native indigenous peoples who made their home here. The arrival of the Spanish people and, later, the Anglos, resulted in a new culture that permeates almost every place in the United States: the Hispanic American culture.
