Oh, the MLA Handbook. How that brings me back to my college days! “Founded in 1883, the Modern Language Association of America provides opportunities for its members to share their scholarly findings and teaching experiences with colleagues and to discuss trends in the academy.”1
Through the weekend, the Modern Language Association is hosting their 127th Annual Convention in Seattle. Some of their sessions are open to the public, so consider joining sessions such as “Pinter in Seattle: A Creative Conversation with Frank Corrado and Harry Burton”, among other offerings.
Can’t make it in person? Follow the Annual Convention via Twitter. May your first full weekend in 2012 be full of interesting conversation!
