MLA Proposals

If you had not looked at the MLA CFP, they are coming due this month. Some of them are due today, as a matter of fact.

You can present twice for MLA.

There are many good topics. I was drawn to the Anglo-Saxon pedagogies, Words made flesh, post-apocalyptic literature, science fiction and fantasy, teaching as a profession, academic presence on the web, and many others.

The problem, as I see it, is if you just submit two proposals, you don’t really have a 50/50 chance of being accepted. But if you send off more than two you are probably being unprofessional. Too bad there aren’t rolling dates, so you could try for some and find out if you made them and then try for others.

My first priority choice is the Anglo-Saxon pedagogies.

What I will do for sure after that… I am not clear on. I’ve written three others, but I haven’t sent them off yet. Which one will I send off?
