The Society for Critical Exchange
2002 MLA Panels
2002 MLA Convention
(27-30 December, New York

As an affiliated organization of the MLA, the SCE has two standing panels at each annual convention. Usually, SCE programs grow out of continuing projects that Society members pursue. This year's sessions continue the work of the Globalization and the Image project, now in its third year.

The presenters and the papers for each of these panels are listed below. Because the SCE attempts to devote conference panels to discussion rather than merely to presentation, we will make summaries of the papers available around 1 December 2002.
