DEADLINE TO SUBMIT PAPER/ABSTRACT TO REGULAR/ALLIED SESSION CHAIRS: MARCH 31, 2014



REGULAR/ALLIED SESSIONS
(FOR INDIVIDUAL MEMBERS WHO WISH TO SUBMIT AN ABSTRACT TO ONE OF OUR EXISTING SESSIONS):


Regular and Allied Sessions are managed by a chair and secretary.  The chair selects papers, checks with the Executive Office to ensure that participants are members of South Central MLA, organizes the session, coordinates the session with the South Central MLA Executive Office, introduces session and speakers, moderates the session and encourages discussion.  The secretary collects signatures of session attendees, keeps a record of attendance, files the gathered information to the Executive Office, and substitutes for the chair when the situation requires.  The South Central MLA prohibits chairs of Regular and Allied Sessions from delivering a paper in the session on which they serve; a chair may however present a paper on a different Regular Session or on a Special Session.  Double submissions (submitting two different papers to two different sessions) are permitted, but if both papers are accepted the author must choose only one panel on which to present and notify both chairs of his or her decision.

Regular/Allied Sessions are created after a session chair selects the best papers or abstracts submitted through open competition.  The list of Regular Session Chairs and their email addresses will be listed in the SCMLA Winter Newsletter and in the link below.  To see a list of the Regular and Allied Sessions that SCMLA offers, please scroll down.



SPECIAL SESSIONS

(FOR MEMBERS WHO WISH TO ORGANIZE A PANEL NOT REPRESENTED IN OUR REGULAR AND ALLIED SESSIONS)

Each member may propose only one Special Session per year. The organizer is responsible for recruiting two to four panelists (including the organizer, if he/she presents) and filling out the paperwork below. Organizers and presenters must be current South Central MLA members. For Special Sessions, chairs and organizers may also deliver papers in their own sessions.  Special Sessions will be refereed by the South Central MLA Program Committee. Organizers are encouraged to include presenters of varying rank and university affiliations to diversify the session.  Members may not deliver more than one paper at the conference.
