IBS-sponsored Sessions

The history of the IBS is closely related to the Modern Language Association of America in that the Society’s members have continuously sponsored scholarly sessions and business meetings at the annual conferences for over 40 years. The IBS was recognized as an official MLA affiliate organization in 1978, with that status being reviewed and renewed in 1999 and 2009. The society has also sponsored sessions at the Association for Theatre in Higher Education (ATHE) and other conferences since 1991. See list of conference sessions.
