Brief Descriptions of Continuing Projects
The SCE runs several continuing research projects which operate through meetings at the national and regional Modern Language Association conventions, through special conferences, and through publication initiatives.
As an affiliate of the national and the five regional MLAs, the SCE has standing panels at conventions, making it possible for members to organize programs on a wide variety of topics. Reports on current SCE projects may be found in the links below. In addition to a description of recent and up-coming activities, a brief history of each project is included, followed by a listing of SCE sponsored conference panels.
We will continue to post information about these projects here on the website, but members should also feel free to contact the individual project coordinators or the SCE directors for additional information. We welcome and encourage suggestions for ways to develop the continuing projects described below, but we also want to urge members to propose new projects.
The SCE will gladly assist members in initiating these new projects and, when feasible, in expanding them into continuing projects, both through logistical and tangible support.
