Session sponsored by the MLA’s Media and Literature Discussion Group
for the 2008 convention in San Francisco:
Second Lives: Reading and Writing Virtual Worlds
Second Life and other persistent virtual worlds, with preference to topics other than pedagogy. 1-page abstract and short vita by March 15 to Matthew Kirschenbaum, mgk AT umd DOT edu.
For the last couple of years, I’ve been a member of the executive committee of the MLA’s discussion group on literature and media (a group name that makes me a little bonkers). Each year, we sponsor one panel at the convention; this year’s call for papers is below. If you’re working on Second Life, please send Matt your proposal ASAP!
