Calling Graduate Student Writers: “The Year in Conferences: MLA” (Deadline: 11.20.2019)

Calling graduate student writers for “The Year in Conferences: MLA”:

ESQ: A Journal of Nineteenth-Century American Literature and Culture is seeking participants to cover the Modern Language Association convention in Seattle this January for its annual “The Year in Conferences” feature.

The MLA team will cover panels of interest to ESQ‘s readers.  This project is an excellent opportunity for scholarly collaboration and professionalization. YiC has been recognized by scholars not just for its utility but also as a mentoring and networking tool. From the initial recruiting stages to panel selection and publication of the final piece, YiC creates a supportive, collaborative environment that encourages participants to do their best work.  Past YiC writers have found the experience very rewarding.

We seek a team of Ph.D. students working in nineteenth-century American literature.  If you are interested in participating, please send a C.V. and brief message describing your scholarly interests to LuElla D’Amico at by November 20, 2019.
