I’d like to say first how grateful I am to those participating in the 242 convention sessions related to my presidential theme, Negotiating Sites of Memory. I wish I could attend all the sessions, and I hope that MLA members will peruse the list of titles in the online Program.
I’m delighted to have the opportunity to say a little more about this theme in three short videos. If you’re curious about what sites of memory are and why I chose Negotiating Sites of Memory as the presidential theme, I invite you to visit the MLA Web site to watch any or all of the videos. If you would like to preview the speakers and their wide-ranging topics in the Presidential Forum and its two linked sessions, you can read a brochure about the sessions.
I’m looking forward to learning new things about my theme in Vancouver in January, and I hope to meet some of you there and then.
