CFP: Modern Language Association (MLA) 2024 Sessions

Numerous MLA committees that perform work related to digital humanities and libraries are seeking proposals for sessions planned for the 2024 MLA Annual Convention.

Of note, the MLA’s Committee on Information Technology (CIT) initiates projects, publications, and other activities relating to the use of computers and other technologies for teaching and research in the language and literature fields. For the MLA convention in Philadelphia in 2024 (Jan. 4-7), the CIT is organizing two sessions to help generate ideas related to its current task of revising the MLA’s 2012 “Guidelines for Evaluating Work in Digital Humanities and Digital Media” and a possible future task of formulating professional guidelines for the use of artificial intelligence(s) in the academy. Abstracts of 300 words or less are due by the end of the day (all time zones) on March 15, 2023. Abstracts may be submitted using this Google Form.

You may also be interested in the CFPs of other MLA committees, which can be found on the MLA 2024 website. In particular, the MLA International Bibliography Advisory Committee seeks participants for a roundtable discussion on the topic of “Increasing the Visibility of Digital Humanities Projects.” The deadline for submissions to this session is March 19, 2023.

Please send submissions to Mary Onorato, MLA International Bibliography ().
