T

he organizing committee for the MLA Subconference is an independent and evolving group of graduate students and adjunct faculty in the humanities who are interested in creating a new kind of conference environment, in order to propose alternative professional, social, and political possibilities for ourselves and our peers. We see both the committee and the conference as an open, collective endeavor that will work collaboratively with and outside more formal academic networks. As such a collective, we are actively seeking new participants and committee members to assist with the upcoming conference in Vancouver and/or those interested in becoming a part of future iterations.
