We had a great time meeting people and selling books last week at the 2016 Modern Language Association Convention in Austin, Texas. Thank you to everyone who stopped by our booth in the exhibit hall! In case you weren’t able to attend, here are some of the conference highlights.
We were excited to hear that Eugenie Brinkema’s book The Forms of the Affects received Honorable Mention for the Modern Language Association Prize for a First Book. Congratulations to her!
The GL/Q Caucus of the MLA awarded the Crompton-Noll Award for Best Essay to Martin F. Manalansan IV’s “The ‘Stuff’ of Archives: Mess, Migration, and Queer Lives,” which was featured in Radical History Review’s “Queering Archives: Historical Unravelings.” The award recognizes essays in lesbian, gay, and queer studies in the modern languages and literatures. Congratulations, Professor Manalansan!
At their Saturday reception, the GL/Q Caucus also raised a glass to Nadia Ellis’s Territories of the Soul: Queered Belonging in the African Diaspora and Victor Mendoza’s Metroimperial Intimacies: Fantasy, Racial-Sexual Governance, and the Philippines in U.S. Imperialism, 1899-1913.
A Friday reception celebrated the minnesota review: a journal of creative and critical writing.
We were happy to see some of our authors stop by the booth! Here are a few photos we took.
