Panel on scholarly editions: Active reasding

Hi All,

Readers of this list might be interested in submitting a proposal for our
guaranteed roundtable at the 2021 MLA in Toronto.

For this MLA Convention 2021 guaranteed panel for the MLA Committee on 
Scholarly Editions, the participants of this roundtable will consider active

This committee is also hosting a second guaranteed panel on 'Social

types of institutions and perspectives.

Proposals will be selected and presenters notified before April 1. All
presenters must be members of the MLA prior to April 1, 2020.
