Presidential Theme for 2013 Convention
UPDATED 27 January 2012
2012–13 MLA President Michael Bérubé has announced that the presidential theme for the 2013 MLA Annual Convention in Boston will be Avenues of Access. In a letter now available on the MLA Web site, Bérubé invites members to propose sessions that address student access to higher education, tenure-track jobs for PhDs, the implications of disability studies for the humanities, or open access and the future of scholarly communication. Those interested in organizing sessions as part of the presidential theme may submit calls for papers through 21 February. Session proposal forms will be available on the site in early March.
