How do altmetrics, indicators beyond citation-based metrics, lend themselves to humanities? What remains invisible, uncounted, untold? Responsible metrics vis-à-vis the language of publication, dissemination channels or publication formats?

We invite short presentations (7-10 minutes) that address these questions for a session at the 2022 MLA Convention in Washington, DC.

Please submit an abstract of approximately 200 words.
