Washington Bound

I just received the good news that a paper I’ve proposed for the film panel at this year’s MLA conference in Washington, D.C., has been accepted. I’ve never had a paper accepted to MLA before, so like Mel, I’m practically dancing around the room, as much as I can dance given my complete lack of rhythm. I’ll be presenting material from my current book project on time-travel films, focusing primarily on my reading of The Jacket.

    Congrats Chuck!

    We’ll definitely need to have a Herd / blogger get together, since I imagine that a lot of us will be around…

    Will keep everyone posted on my MLA plans–sounds like MLADC will be quite a scene. Thanks again for the congratulations!
