Meeting Description: Northern Illinois University is proud to host the 21st annual Midwestern Conference on Literature, Language, and Media.

This conference theme is inspired by the work of our keynote speaker, Hillary Chute, Neubauer Family Assistant Professor at the University of Chicago and Faculty Fellow at the Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality. Author of Graphic Women: Life Narrative and Contemporary Comics and associate editor of Art Spiegelman’s MetaMaus, Chute is a critical authority on graphic narrative. She identifies her specific interest ‘in the relationships between word and image, fiction and nonfiction that we see in contemporary comic.’

Dr. Chute will deliver her keynote address on the evening of March 22 following a dinner reception. Reception tickets may be purchased at time of registration.
