 The Northeast Modern Language Association will meet in Toronto, Ontario, for its 46th annual convention. The Call for Papers is available online and in NeMLA’s newsletter. Abstract proposals for convention 2015 are due September 30, 2014.

Every year, the convention 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.
