Midwest Chapter @ MLA ’12

Are YOU going to MLA ’12 in Seattle? I will not be there…but that is not going to keep me from participating! I registered for the e-Conference which is “the next best thing to being there.” Online content will be “close to live” with streaming video of the big events available within 24 hours. With my e-registration, I am able to use the online scheduler, so I searched to see what our chapter members will be doing during the meeting. The Midwest Chapter/MLA will be well-represented at this year’s annual MLA meeting. I’m looking forward to watching our chapter members’ presentations on video (synchronized with their PowerPoint slides even) and looking at their posters online.

Here is a list of chapter members who will be presenting sessions and/or posters at this year’s meeting:
