The MLA Conference Mentoring Program offers opportunities for first-time attendees to be matched with mentors who will answer questions about the structure of MLA, the purposes of the conference, and how these purposes are carried out in various forums. Mentors and mentees may attend a session, interest groups, poster sessions and/or exhibits together. Other opportunities for interacting include meeting up for coffee or a meal and introducing newcomers to people at the conference.
Announcements will appear on the conference website and mla-l prior to each conference with information for signing up. Participants will be matched prior to the conference, and each person will receive an e-mail with the contact information of your assigned partner.
