Student working on a research project.

Northeast Modern Language Association Undergraduate Research Forum

The Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA) is a non-profit organization of teachers and scholars of literature, language, and culture and the largest regional affiliate of the Modern Language Association (MLA). This year, NeMLA will host its first ever Undergraduate Research Forum at its 50th Anniversary Convention and undergraduate students like you are are invited to submit a research proposal!

In your proposals, we encourage you to explore how literary works, languages and cultures influence one another and challenge traditional notions of history, territory and identity to recognize the complex processes of trans-culturation that characterize our lives. For full abstract guidelines, please visit our website.

Please submit a 300-word abstract, a bibliography, and a 100-word bio by December 1, 2018. Accepted students will be notified by January 1, 2019. The Research Forum will take place at the Gaylord National Resort Center in Washington, DC on March 21, 2018.
