Please join us for NeMLA's 51st Annual Convention at the Boston Marriott Copley Place, conveniently located in the heart of the city. The theme of NeMLA 2020 is "Shaping and Sharing Identities: Spaces, Places, Languages, and Cultures" — a topic embracing the many facets that define each and every human being across cultures and languages, as well as the many ways in which we interact with each other in today’s rapidly changing global world.

We are thrilled to announce that Boston University is our local host institution and that our featured author is Andre Dubus III, whose novel Gone So Long will be the focus of "NeMLA Reads Together." The opening address will be given by Professor Maurice Lee, author of the award-winning Uncertain Chances: Science, Skepticism, and Belief in 19th-century American Literature. We look forward to seeing you in Boston!

Submit session proposals with a free NeMLA user account at cfplist.com/nemla by April 29, 2019. For more information, please visit buffalo.edu/nemla.
