Dear colleagues,

The next MLA Convention will be held in Washington, D.C., January 6-9 2022.

Each year, the Modern Greek Studies Association is guaranteed one session at the MLA and can submit proposals for one more. If you are interested in proposing a session for the MLA, please review the following deadlines and send the appropriate information to me, the MGSA/MLA Liaison (lathanas at nyit.edu<mailto:lathanas at nyit.edu>)

By January 31, 2021, please submit:

  1.  A 300-word CFP with your proposal for the panel. The description should include the main topic of the panel for which you will seek abstracts.
  2.  A 35-word CFP to be posted on the MLA website. This description is a shorter version of the 300-word CFP. See examples here: https://mla.confex.com/mla/2022/webprogrampreliminary/alphabetical.html

  *   The CFPs will be reviewed and two will be posted on the MLA website, where visibility will increase the chances of soliciting abstracts.

By March 20, 2021, the organizers of the two selected panels must submit: full names of panelists, their institutional affiliations, and their paper titles.

  *   Organizers will be notified if their panel will be the guaranteed or the non-guaranteed panel.

By March 27, 2021, the non-guaranteed session will be asked to submit a detailed description, not to exceed 1,000 words.

  *   The proposal for the non-guaranteed panel will be reviewed by the MLA Program Committee. Please consult the following MLA page for examples of detailed descriptions: https://www.mla.org/Convention/Planning-a-Convention-Session/Proposing-a-Special-Session/Detailed-Description-Examples

Please let me know if you have any questions. I’m here to help guide you throughout this process, especially if it is your first time proposing a panel at the MLA.
