I’m a member!

August 8, 2008


So in my continuing effort to be a ridiculous nerd, I joined the MLA the other day. I had never really thought about it before, but when I discovered that, as a graduate student, I could join for an annual fee of only $20 I couldn’t resist. With my membership, I get several theoretical publications sent to me as well as quarterly MLA newsletters and discounted book deals. Above all, I get the chance to submit an abstract to get it accepted for presentation at the annual MLA conference. I really don’t know how many non-PhDs get to present there, but it’s worth the shot. It would boost my CV along with my nerd status.

I’ve really nothing to say beyond that. I’m still pretty excited to be a member.
