Intersections of Text, Image, and Research
SAMLA 86 Poster Session
Atlanta, Georgia
Atlanta Marriott Buckhead Hotel and Conference Center
November 7-9,2014

SAMLA welcomes proposals of representations of scholarly work that serve to explicate a researched topic and expand understanding through visual design and incorporation of visual elements and graphics. Proposals for this session should explain how research will manifest itself in the presentation. The
presentation may be multi-media or a poster display. Limited technology may be available for multimedia/multimodal works. While this form of presentation is new in the study of literature,composition/rhetoric, and linguistics, the Program Committee believes this method will create new opportunities for discussions about literature and language and expand our understanding of scholarly research. Presentations that focus on the special focus of the conference,"Sustainability and the
Humanities" are particularly encouraged. By August 1, 2014, please submit a brief description of the project, visual design, and A/V requirements to the SAMLA office at
