About the MLA
The Modern Language Association of America and its 24,000 members in more than 100 countries work to promote the study and teaching of languages and literatures through MLA programs, publications, annual convention, and advocacy work. The MLA provides opportunities for its members to share their scholarly findings and teaching experiences with colleagues, discuss trends in the academy, and advocate humanities education and workplace equity. The MLA sustains a wide-ranging print and electronic publishing program that includes books, journals, style guides, and an international bibliography. Through the Association of Departments of English and the Association of Departments of Foreign Languages, the MLA also supports the work of department chairs and directors of graduate studies. More information on MLA programs is available at www.mla.org/.
