At its 51st annual convention, NeMLA expects 1,800 higher education professionals from throughout the northeastern U.S. and Canada as well as from across the pond to attend over 400 sessions that examine British, American, German, French, Italian, and Hispanic literatures, women's studies and literary theory, cultural studies, and film. Our annual convention is your chance to reach them!
We encourage local, national, and international publishers and presses, academic institutions, and scholarly organizations to take advantage of our exhibitor and advertising opportunities.
The exhibit hall will be hosted at the Boston Marriott Copley Place, hosted by Boston University.

The Northeast Modern Language Association arranges with The Scholar’s Choice to manage the combined book exhibit for our annual conference. It may be possible for your recently-published books to be included in their display. Publishers who are unable to attend, but wish to have a few titles exhibited should contact The Scholar's Choice.
Please refer to the guidelines below:
“Any members interested in having their book displayed at the upcoming NeMLA meeting should contact their publisher as soon as possible to see if they would be willing to send the book for the exhibit. Requests from the presses will be accepted until March 1 or until the table space has filled. The Scholar’s Choice displays on behalf of the publishers and all requests must come from them, not the individual authors. If they don’t already have it, the press may request the appropriate paperwork by emailing Mary Lynn Howe.”
Shipping, deliveries, and printing services are available at the FedEx inside the Marriott Copley Place. More information is available below.
Promote Your Authors at Future Conventions!
At NeMLA, we understand how valuable the partnership is between our members and the publishing companies who promote their work. Every year, we provide our members with a wide array of special speakers at the convention, and we are inviting you to help us connect with your authors as potential speakers at NeMLA. It is a fantastic opportunity to connect with more than 1800 professors, graduate students, and independent scholars, and to sell books. Guest speakers enjoy free convention registration, NeMLA membership, and an honorarium.
Publishers or authors wishing to explore opportunities at the conventions listed below are invited to email Executive Director Carine Mardorossian.
Do you have an author with a book coming out or a new service you would like to promote? All exhibitors will now have the opportunity to offer a workshop in the Exhibits Room at the NeMLA convention. NeMLA will promote your workshop as part of our Professionalization Initiatives, and convention attendees will have the opportunity to pre-register. Space is limited, and exhibitors who sign up after November 1 may be asked to share a workshop and may not be included in the workshops listed in our Winter 2020 newsletter. For more information, please email Claire Sommers, Promotions, Exhibits, and Professionalization Coordinator.
