 "The University"
Convention Informal Theme
Some possible topics might include:
The Idea of the university from Kant to now
Disciplinary histories
Publics of the university
Representations of the university (in film, fiction, memoir, and other media)
The rise (and fall) of the research university
Class, race, and gender of and in the university
Corporatization and privatization

M/MLA members are guaranteed a special room rate of $140 for a single, $140 for a double, $155 for a triple, and $169 for a quad at the Hilton Chicago. To secure the special rate, be sure to make your reservation by October 20 and be sure to mention the M/MLA when calling the hotel's reservation line (1-800-HILTONS or 1-800-445-8667). The Hilton Chicago can begin accepting M/MLA reservations on August 11, 2003.
Because the M/MLA has a guest obligation at the convention hotel in return for complimentary meeting space, members are warmly urged to take advantage of the exceptionally good rate that a fair amount of wrangling has secured. That has seemed a wiser option in keeping with M/MLA tradition than lining up competing hotels, all of whom would have to be paid for meeting space via higher convention registration rates. As usual, we are trying to keep those low.
