        Subject: ACH's CfP for 2018 MLA Convention: Printable Pedagogy and 3D Theses

Dear colleagues,

The ACH has posted its call for proposals 
for our guaranteed session at the 2018 MLA convention, which takes place
from 4-7 January in New York City:

Over the last decade, at roughly the same time that digital humanities
methods and tools have appeared in language and literature classrooms and
research, universities have made investments in 3D printing and
makerspaces. And in a similar way to digital humanities, those working in
modern languages might not immediately see how they could use fabrication
technologies in their teaching and research.

For its session at the 2018 MLA Convention
<https://www.mla.org/Convention/MLA-2018> (4-7 January in New York City),
ACH invites proposals that highlight how 3D printing, soft circuits, or
other methods of physical fabrication are used to teach languages or
literature *or* to conduct linguistic or literary research. Speakers will
give brief talks (4-6 minutes, depending on number of participants) that
address the praxis of printing and the metaphysics of physicalization.
While a discussion of *what you made* and *how you made it* will naturally
feature in these talks, it is more important to discuss how the act of
making contributed to the understanding of languages and/or literatures. In
this way, this session is cousin to the ACH’s 2014 session at the MLA
 http://ach.org/2013/03/12/beyond-digital-cfp-mla-2014/ .

Please send abstracts of 250 words (not including references) to brian
[dot] croxall [at] brown [dot] edu. Abstracts should be received by *5pm
EST / GMT-5 on 15 March 2017*. N.B. All accepted panelists will need to be
current MLA members—or have their membership waived—*by 7 April 2017*.

Since the ACH is an allied organization of the MLA, this session is *guaranteed
to be accepted* for the 2018 MLA.
Please consider submitting a proposal!
