15 August Deadline for Proposals for MLA Symposium

Are you interested in participating in the MLA’s first conference outside the United States and Canada? Proposals for sessions at Other Europes: Migrations, Translations, Transformations (to be held in Düsseldorf from 23 to 25 June 2016) are due by 15 August. Organized in collaboration with the Heinrich Heine University, the symposium seeks to develop ways of thinking that emerge from and address Europe’s evolving political, economic, historical, and philosophical role in a world of ever-shifting migrations, translations, and transformations. The conference will feature several keynote talks and roundtables, as well as traditional sessions with three or four fifteen-minute papers, workshops with precirculated papers, and roundtable conversations based on five-minute presentations. Sessions will be ninety minutes long and include thirty minutes of discussion at the end. To propose a session, please write to ​othereuropes2016@hhu.de. To learn more about the conference, including proposal requirements, please visit the conference site on MLA Commons.
