Organization: Midwest Modern Language Association
The Central American Literature permanent section of the Midwest Modern Language Association seeks proposals for the upcoming MMLA Convention in Minneapolis, MN (Nov 16-21, 2022). This section welcomes proposals that analyze and interpret literature, audiovisual productions, and other cultural manifestations from Central America, with diverse methodologies and perspectives, with any national or transnational focus within the region, and those with a transcontinental or transoceanic connection. Thematic areas of analysis can include, and are not limited to, the 2022 MMLA theme: “Post-Now,” as well as any cultural, economic, social, and political aspect reflected in the artistic, cultural, and literary productions of the seven Central American nations: Belize, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua and Panama.
