CFP: MLA 2025 Panels

The Modern Language Association’s 2025 Annual Convention will be offering several panels with overlaps in digital humanities and librarianship. The 2025 Convention theme is “Visibility,” and will be in New Orleans in January of 2025, with proposals due for submission in various dates in March 2024. Here are two panels with particular connections:
