The Graduate Student Caucus typically organizes two panels at the annual meeting of the MLA. For more information on the panels, please contact the First Vice-President of the caucus. The CFPs will be circulated on familiar listservs, and any graduate student in the modern languages is eligible to participate. Additional events relevant to graduate students will also be posted below.
Please submit a 300-word abstract and a CV. by 15 March 2017. (both panels organized and moderated by Emily O'Dell)
