MLA 2021: Call for papers, posters, lightning talks, etc
The 2021 National Program Committee invites abstract submissions that support the annual meeting theme of “Transforming our Diversifying Communities." The call has been divided into two calls for submission:
Call for papers and immersion sessions: Now open! Deadline is October 21, 2020, 6:00 p.m., central time
Call for posters and lightning talks: Will open December 11, 2020. Deadline is January 22, 2021, 6:00 p.m., central time
Accept and decline letters will be sent in early December for immersion sessions and papers, and 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.
Groups (caucuses, chapters, 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 Caucus awards individuals with the best research-based papers and posters. Details about research awards for MLA ’21 will be provided once MLA’s new community structure is in place.
