January 2015 is right around the corner! Or maybe it just seems that way from my desk in the convention office. MLA members have put together a great convention, and all of us on staff look forward to seeing you in Vancouver.
This year’s convention includes nearly eight hundred sessions, and more than two hundred address the presidential theme, Negotiating Sites of Memory. Nobody can attend every session, so we encourage you to extend the discussion on MLA Commons. Join the 2015 MLA Convention group and start a discussion, or create a group or blog for your session. Both are great ways to get the conversations rolling (and you’ll have a head start on your presentation).
Vancouver is a beautiful city situated between the Pacific Ocean and the Coast Mountains. The convention center has views of the water and the mountains, and the MLA registration and welcome center features floor-to-ceiling windows. Great food from all corners of the globe will keep you going (along with the numerous coffee shops!). Vancouver natives and fans—we’re counting on you to post your favorites.
We’ll be back with more updates. In the meantime, we encourage you to join the conversation.
Registration will open in early September for all MLA members. Please reach out to us if you have any questions.
Associate Director, MLA Convention Programs
