he 26th annual Midwestern Conference on Literature, Language and Media (MCLLM) at Northern Illinois University in DeKalb, IL, takes place April 13-14. This year’s conference theme is Borders and Transitions.
This year’s distinguished keynote speaker is Peter J. Capuano, associate professor of English and the director of the Interdisciplinary Studies Program at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Examples of his work include his 2015 book Changing Hands: Industry, Evolution, and the Reconfiguration of the Victorian Body, along with essays such as "Digital Dombey" and "Computational Contexts and Dickensian Depths."
