Your network. Your resource. Your community. The MLA is a professional association of over 25,000 scholars and teachers of languages and literatures. Members collaborate on sessions at the MLA Annual Convention, share their work on MLA Commons, publish in MLA books and journals, and provide leadership on professional issues through MLA committees. We also offer support for departments and programs through MLA Academic Program Services.
