SAMLA 90 Poster Session: A Visual Representation of Scholarly Work

November 2, 2016, 8:00–9:00 pm

Westin Peachtree Plaza

Call for Proposals


For its Poster Session, SAMLA welcomes proposals for visual representations of scholarly work. The Poster Session, which features both traditional posters and new media projects, allows presenters the chance to share their research with attendees through graphic design and multimodal composition. We particularly encourage presentations that focus on the special topic of this year’s conference, “Fighters from the Margins: Socio-Political Activists and Their Allies.”

On Friday night, SAMLA’s Poster Session will be held conjointly with its Presidential Reception, which includes light hors d’oeuvre and an open bar, creating opportunities for discussions about languages and literatures in a dynamic setting. We welcome posters from undergraduate students, graduate students, independent scholars, post-doctoral fellows, part- and full-time faculty members, as well as all other hopeful SAMLA participants.

By October 1, 2018, submit a brief description of the project and visual design for consideration to Dan Abitz, Associate Director, at for review. To expedite the process, please include “POSTER SESSION SUBMISSION” in the email’s subject line. Limited technological support will be available for multimedia works. SAMLA Membership and Conference Registration is required.
