The theme of this year's Midwest MLA conference is "The Lives of Cities."  Please see the e-mail below.

The MMLA Program Committee would like to encourage you to submit proposals for the 2014 conference. Of course, individual paper proposals are always welcome. These are due by May 15 in the MMLA office (mmla at luc.edu<mailto:mmla at luc.edu>). (See the  the full conference CFP (
http://cts.vresp.com/c/?MidwestModernLanguag/11e4ab649c/4ebe78efcc/d69fcd1446 ) for more information on submitting individual proposals.) But you might also like to take advantage of the opportunity to chair your own Special Session at the conference.

The Program Committee seeks CFPs for Special Sessions that address the 2014 conference theme, "The Lives of Cities." Special Sessions may focus on any literary period/category or may encourage papers that cover multiple periods. Please note: the Committee seeks CFPs for panel topics and *does not require* complete panels with identified papers/panelists at this time (though complete panels are also welcome). The Program Committee encourages potential session organizers to read the full conference CFP (
http://cts.vresp.com/c/?MidwestModernLanguag/11e4ab649c/4ebe78efcc/51e9101233 ) for detailed information about the conference theme.

Special Session CFPs are due to the MMLA office (mmla at luc.edu<mailto:mmla at luc.edu>) by April 21. Calls should indicate the name/email contact information of the session organizer, his/her preferred proposal length, and a submission deadline. The MMLA recommends setting a paper proposal deadline of May 21 within your CFP.

Accepted Special Session calls will appear on the MMLA CFP page by May 1. Session organizers are responsible for receiving paper proposals, choosing panelists, and sending program information to the MMLA office by our June deadline. (Specific directions will follow to all session organizers whose CFPs are accepted.)

All session organizers and panelists will need to become MMLA members at the time they register for the conference, if they are not members already.

We hope you will join us in making this a vibrant and varied conference.

President, Midwest Modern Language Association Professor, Department of English Eastern Michigan University
