Poster Sessions

Poster Session

NeMLA recognizes the significant contribution of visual presentations to the body of academic study of literature and other linguistic constructions. Posters can relay complex information in ways that text alone cannot.

This session is an opportunity for NeMLA scholars, including our yearly Summer Research Fellows, to share visual representations of their research. The format of the session allows presenters to display their work in a casual setting and to engage in informal conversations with convention participants regarding their work at a designated place and time.  

Layout and Technology Guidelines

Posters are due December 15.

  • Posters should be designed in an appropriate program. Some options include Microsoft PowerPoint, Adobe PhotoShop, and Adobe InDesign. 
  • Posters should be submitted in one of the following formats: JPG, PNG, PDF, Adobe PhotoShop, or Adobe InDesign.
  • Posters should be at least 300 DPI resolution. 
  • Posters may be in color or black and white. 
  • Posters should be 24 x 36 inches.

Fellows are responsible for printing their own posters. Please confirm with the convention hotel whether printing is available and prices. NeMLA provides easels for all accepted posters.

Due to host constraints, access to technology (including power outlets) may be limited to what presenters provide for themselves. Please contact the chair coordinator with any specific requests, questions, or concerns.
