AFS@MLA Seeks Proposals on Linguistic Diversity of Folk Groups

Calls for Submissions

The theme for the next Modern Language Association Convention (Washington, D.C., January 9–12, 2022) is “Multilingual U.S.” AFS@MLA seeks paper proposals that highlight the linguistic diversity—both literal and metaphorical—of folk groups in the United States. For instance, how does multilingualism enhance the practices and/or expressions of the folk groups we study? Or, how are folklorists working to promote and/or revitalize multilingualism across civic and cultural spaces? Proposals that cross disciplinary boundaries are strongly encouraged. Because this is a session sponsored by the American Folklore Society, organizers give priority to proposals submitted by AFS members. Send a 300-word abstract and one-page CV to Jim Deutsch[email protected], by March 18, 2021.
