Multimodal Composition in Writing-in-the-Disciplines Courses

How might new media be changing genres? How might new media be changing research into WID pedagogy itself? Proposals exploring any aspect of this question from the theoretical to the practical are welcome, and proposals that use new media themselves are especially encouraged. Please email proposals to Kim Freeman, Northeastern University,

The 2013 NeMLA convention continues the Association's tradition of sharing innovative scholarship in an engaging and generative location. The 44th annual event will be held in historic Boston, Massachusetts, a city known for its national and maritime history, academic facilities and collections, vibrant art, theatre, and food scenes, and blend of architecture. The Convention, located centrally near Boston Commons and the Theatre District at the Hyatt Regency, will include keynote and guest speakers, literary readings, film screenings, tours and workshops.

Interested participants may submit abstracts to more than one NeMLA session; however, panelists can only present one paper (panel or seminar). Convention participants may present a paper at a panel and also present at a creative session or participate in a roundtable.
