NeMLA's 53rd Annual Convention

The 2022 NeMLA conference theme is CARE. We understand CARE as the practice of interdependency, admitting our vulnerabilities as humans, animals, and other living organisms of the Anthropocene. The NeMLA theme of CARE will embrace but not be limited to questions of representation, migration, the environment, and identity.
