Immersion Sessions

The 2024 National Program Committee invites abstract submissions that support the annual conference theme of "MLA '24: Stronger Together." A few things to note about the contributed content:

  • Immersion Session can be submitted during Round 1 beginning August 31, 2023. The deadline for round 1 is October 26, 2023. See MLA '24 FAQs for more information
  • The format of an immersion session could include panel presentations, role-playing, gamification, group discussions, working groups, to name a few options. What is most important is to make sure that the activities are engaging and encourage audience participation. Organizers should plan for a 75-minute interactive session. 
  • MLA ‘24 will offer a limited number of immersion, paper, and lightning talk sessions virtually with the majority to be held at the in-person conference in Portland, OR. Speakers will be asked to provide their preference for presenting (Live Virtual Session or In-Person Session) at time of submission. If selected, they will be able to provide their final preferences in Spring 2024.
  • Acceptance notices for immersion sessions will be sent December 6.
