Meeting Description:

The 18th annual Midwest Conference on Language, Literature, and Media
(MCLLM) will be held April 9-10, 2010
at Northern Illinois University in DeKalb, Illinois.

Keynote Speaker:
Dr. George Lakoff, University of California-Berkeley, author of Metaphors
We Live By (1980), Women, Fire, and Dangerous Things: What Categories
Reveal About the Mind (1987), Philosophy In The Flesh: the Embodied
Mind and its Challenge to Western Thought (1999), The Political Mind : Why
You Can't Understand 21st-Century American Politics with an 18th-Century
Brain (2008).

This year's theme is Interdisciplinarity. As exemplified by Dr. Lakoff's
application of his theories across a variety of disciplines, investigation and
education at the points of disciplinary intersection are becoming increasingly
important in academia and our world at large.

Call for Papers

We invite proposals for fifteen minute papers from scholars at all stages of
their careers. Topics related to this year's theme may include, but are not
limited to, writing across the curriculum, linguistics and literature, cross-
cultural film studies, technical communication, cognitive research and
application, the construction of gender and ethnicity, language policy, and
theories of knowledge creation; however, MCLLM also welcomes papers on all
areas of language, literature, and media studies.

Individual or panel (three to four people) proposals are welcome.
