Meeting Description:

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.

Program Information:

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!

The online schedule and mobile app will be the most up-to-date sources, available by January 2021. Updates will also be available at the NeMLA Registration Desk and in convention program inserts.
