This is the last call to submit a panel topic for the Modern Language Association Convention in Chicago, scheduled for Jan. 9-12, 2014. The deadline was slightly extended due to individuals having the flu.
The International Virginia Woolf Society will have one guaranteed panel, and the group can submit one additional panel, as it did for the 2013 MLA Convention in Boston with the Katherine Mansfield Society. It may also (as for this past MLA with the Joseph Conrad Society) collaborate with another Allied Organization and submit a third panel.
Organizers would like to continue the tradition of submitting multiple excellent panel proposals. Note that this is a call for panels, not individual paper proposals. Please submit only one topic.
What you should submit:
- a 35-word description (word count includes title)
- the name(s) and contact information of the proposed organizer(s). [email addresses required.] Note: It can be quite helpful to have more than one organizer, especially if seasonal illness strikes
Submit to Leslie Kathleen Hankins electronically at email@example.com or by mail. Electronic submissions are strongly preferred. The topic line should read: Woolf MLA 2014.
Deadline: Jan. 15 for the receipt of proposals.
The IVWS will vote on the resulting proposals in January, so as to meet MLA deadlines.
If you wish to propose your own special session outside of the IVWS process, please go to the MLA website, http://www.mla.org.
