All events are at the Omni William Penn unless otherwise stated.
Join NeMLA members who advocate for contingent, adjunct, or independent scholars and faculty at two-year institutions to discuss the business and goals of the CAITY Caucus. Topics include panels, speakers, and continuing to advocate for our members on topics including pedagogy, unionizing, and non-traditional career paths.
The Graduate Student Caucus invites you to discuss how NeMLA can better serve its graduate student members. At our business meeting, we will discuss sessions the GSC might propose, graduate student experience at the Convention, what we can do during the rest of the year to advocate and keep you informed, and opportunities for you to get involved. We welcome agenda additions via email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The Women's and Gender Studies Caucus welcomes current as well as prospective members. The agenda includes suggestions for future speakers and topics at NeMLA conferences, as well as nominations for Caucus officer positions.
The meeting follows the Women's and Gender Studies Mentorship Program Breakfast.
Open to all members
The membership meeting will begin with highlights from the 2016 MLA Language Enrollment Census by Dennis Looney, director of programs and ADFL, MLA. We will then announce our Essay and Book Award winners, honor outgoing and incoming Board members, and hand out flyers and posters for the Call for Session Proposals for our 50th Anniversary Convention in Washington, D.C.
In addition to the free continental breakfast for the second and third days of the convention, NeMLA will host its annual free Sunday late-morning Membership Brunch, which allows all members to converse and network. The brunch will also offer NeMLA attendees an opportunity to converse and network.
