The Digital Humanities section of the Midwest Modern Language Association is accepting proposals for scholarly and literary presentations that examine, complicate, or challenge concepts of borders and bordering as imagined across multiple modes of digital production. The MMLA conference will take place in St. Louis, Missouri, November 10-13, 2016.
We invite proposals that broadly interpret the conference theme, “Border States,” through multiple disciplinary lenses, such as computational text analysis, critical/creative media, game studies, data mining/archiving, and digital pedagogy. We are especially interested in presentations that explore the impact of digital media on literary production.
Please send a 200-300-word abstract and a brief bio to the section co-chairs, Melinda Weinstein (firstname.lastname@example.org.) and Francesco Levato (email@example.com), by April 5th, 2016. Include in your abstract your name, institutional affiliation, e-mail address and paper title.
The Midwest Modern Language Association is a non-profit organization of teachers and scholars of literature, language, and culture.
