The eleventh annual meeting of the Georgia Philological Association (GPA) will convene at the Middle Georgia State University Conference Center at 100 College Station Drive, Macon, Georgia on Friday, May 20, 2016. We invite proposals for session topics, panel discussion topics, and scholarly papers in English on any subjects relating to American, British, French, Hispanic, Russian, German, or Slavic literature or language, as well as composition, philosophy, history, translation, the general humanities, interdisciplinary studies, and pedagogy. Reading times for individual paper presentations will be strictly limited to 15 minutes (approximately eight double-spaced typed pages). Although conference presentations are limited to 15 minutes, presenters may submit longer or more complex versions (8,000 words maximum) to be considered for publication in the Journal of the Georgia Philological Association. Specific session times, content areas, and sites will be determined as soon as we have received and evaluated all submissions. All presenters must be members of the Georgia Philological Association. Conference registration fees are $10.00 for students and $30.00 for all others. The deadline for registration is April 30, 2016. A conference registration fee submitted after April 30, 2016 will be $35.00 for faculty/non-students. The registration fee includes a luncheon, refreshments at breaks, and conference materials. We invite presenters to look forward to participating in the afternoon door-prize event. Please submit 100-word abstracts in English for session topics by March 20, 2016 by email to Dr. Lisa Bro, Middle Georgia State University, Department of English, at lisa.bro@mga.edu.
