MIFLC Postponed to October 2021

With the uncertainty surrounding the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Executive Committee of the Mountain Interstate Foreign Language Association (MIFLA) has made the difficult decision to postpone the 70th annual Mountain Interstate Foreign Language Conference (MIFLC) by one year, to October 2021. At this point, the plan is for the October 2021 conference to remain at Furman University with the same keynote speaker: Dr. Susan Carvahlo, Associate Provost and Dean of the Graduate School at the University of Alabama. All participants who were accepted for the originally planned October 2020 conference will be invited to present their work in 2021 without the need to reapply. Of course, if individual participants would like to withdraw and present their work elsewhere, you are free to do so. Please contact us at miflc2020@furman.edu if this is the case. We also will be accepting new proposals for panels and talks for the 2021 iteration.
