    CFP–Putting it into Words: Age, Language, and Expression: We invite abstracts for a guaranteed panel at MLA 2019 in Chicago proposed by the TC Age Studies forum. There are situations throughout the life course that are beyond words, yet authors must put them into words. We invite papers that draw on age studies scholarship to explore nonlinguistic expression and aging, such as dementia and adolescent conflict. All linguistic and national contexts and genres are welcome. Send 250-word proposal and brief CV by March 10 to Nancy Backes, backesnc@gmail.com and Sally Chivers, sallychivers@trentu.ca
