MLA ’19 Call for Submissions

New for MLA ’19: Changes in Papers, Immersion Sessions, Posters, and Lightning Talks Submission Process

The 2019 National Program Committee invites abstract submissions that support the annual meeting theme of “Elevate.” The appeal has been divided into two calls for submission:

  • Call for papers and immersion sessions (formerly, special content sessions): Now closed. Deadline was October 24, 2018, 6:00 p.m. (central time)
  • Call for posters and lightning talks: Now closed. Deadline for submissions was January 25, 2019, 6:00 p.m. (central time)

Accept and decline letters will be sent in early December for immersion sessions and papers; end January/early February for lightning talks and posters.

How to Submit

  • Submit your paper structured abstract with a description of a research project or program using the guidelines on MLANET  (submissions now closed for this type).
  • Groups (sections, chapters, special interest groups, and others) can submit proposals for substantial, focused content sessions (for example, invited speakers or panel presentations) in the first call.  Previously known as special content sessions, these are now called immersion sessions.
  • The MLA Research Section awards individuals with the best research-based papers and posters.

Submissions for posters and lightning talks now closed.
