The 19th annual Midwestern Conference on Literature, Language, and Media (MCLLM) will be held April 1-2, 2011 at Northern Illinois University in DeKalb, Illinois.
This year's theme is The Power of the Humanities. Inspired by Dr. Emily Auerbach’s keynote address and her work across the humanities, the organizers encourage research that examines the influences of language and literature that have significantly altered those disciplines and people's lives.
Dr. Emily Auerbach, University of Wisconsin-Madison, author of Maestros, Dilettantes, and Philistines (1989) and Searching for Jane Austen (2004); Director of the UW Odyssey Project; and Project Director of the 'Courage to Write' radio series.
