Meeting Description:

NeMLA's annual convention is an opportunity for scholars across the range of modern languages and literatures to gather for four days of intensive scholarly inquiry and discovery. The 52nd Annual Convention will be held March 11 to 14, 2021, in Philadelphia.

Please join us for NeMLA's 52nd Annual Convention in the ''Birthplace of America.'' The conference will take place at the Marriott Downtown, steps from Independence Hall, the Reading Terminal Market, and other treasures of art, culture, and community. This year's theme, ''Tradition and Innovation: Changing Worlds Through the Humanities,'' asks how evolving traditions in the humanities have helped us understand our changing worlds, both real and imaginary.

We are delighted to host, for our Thursday opening address, Professor Jed Esty, author of Unseasonable Youth: Modernism, Colonialism, and the Fiction of Development and Vartan Gregorian Professor of English at the University of Pennsylvania. Our Friday keynote event will be given by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Jennifer Egan, whose novel Manhattan Beach will be the focus of ''NeMLA Reads Together.'' We look forward to seeing you in Philly!
