NeMLA's 56th Annual Convention

March 6-9, 2025
Philadelphia, PA
Hotel & Convention Site: Philadelphia Marriott Downtown

Our Thursday opening address will be given by Benjamin Fraser.
Our Friday keynote event will be given by Julia Alvarez.

This year's theme, "(R)EVOLUTION," asks how the Humanities—in all their infinite variations, genres, and productions—have changed (in) our world, or failed to do so, or have maybe offered more or less progressive and imaginative mappings for more or less radical change. What role can the Humanities play in society, to honor our cultural and global diversity in all its dimensions.
