46th Annual Convention: Toronto, Ontario

April 30-May 3, 2015

Toronto waterfront, Toronto, Canada.

The Northeast Modern Language Association will meet in Toronto, Ontario, for its 46th annual convention. Every year, this event affords NeMLA’s principal opportunity to carry on a tradition of lively research and pedagogical exchange in language and literature. This year’s convention will include roundtable and caucus meetings, workshops, literary readings, film screenings, and guest speakers.

Toronto is Canada’s hub of international arts and culture, known for its diverse culinary scene and multicultural urban vitality. NeMLA convention delegates can explore galleries and museums, shop at historic markets, and discover vibrant international villages—all within a short commute of the convention hotel, the famous Fairmont Royal York, in the heart of downtown Toronto.

Note that this year, NeMLA is using a new user-based system to manage and track convention information. You must sign up with NeMLA in order to propose a session for convention 2015 in Toronto, Ontario. If you are already signed up, you can log in and propose your session from the User Home.

At this time, the new system is separate from the RegOnline system we use to manage membership payments. Signing up with NeMLA so you can propose a session does mean creating a new password to access the NeMLA site; however, doing so will not invalidate or interfere with the current membership you purchased through RegOnline, nor will it require you to pay the membership fee a second time.

Deadline for session proposals extended to: April 24, 2014.

Deadline for abstract proposals: September 30, 2014.

Submit abstracts to these areas:

  • American
  • Anglophone
  • British
  • Canadian
  • Comparative Languages and Theory
  • Composition and Rhetoric
  • Film and Cultural Studies
  • French and Francophone
  • German
  • Interdisciplinary Humanities
  • Italian
  • Pedagogy
