Happy New Year and Happy #MLA16!


Kick off the new year by contributing to the Sweetland Digital Rhetoric Collaborative’s annual MLA Review Roundup! The DRC is seeking reviewers for MLA 2016 sessions related to digital rhetoric, theory, and pedagogy, and we hope many of our readers will be willing to write a session review to be published on the DRC site.

If you would like to be a reviewer for a #MLA16 session, please visit our Google Form to sign up for a session to review. Your review should include an overview of the session, but should also address key implications, stakes, or take-away points. Please also make sure that if you offer relevant critique in your review, you do so in a collegial and constructive manner. You can find models of previous MLA reviews on the DRC website.

Reviews can be composed in written text (500-1500 words) or in any other appropriate media as long as the information can be received by a user in 3-5 minutes. We reserve the right to send reviews back for revision if necessary, and we may do some editing of received reviews. First drafts of reviews are due January 17th, and we will be in touch about how to submit reviews.

If you have any questions or would like more information, you can contact the DRC fellows at drcfellows@umich.edu.
