Planning Your Convention Session

All MLA members and others involved in the study or teaching of language and literature must register for the convention to participate in or attend meetings, visit the exhibit hall, take part in job interviews, or reserve hotel rooms at special MLA rates. Registration opens in early September for MLA members. Nonmember registration begins in October.

PLEASE NOTE: Renewing a membership or becoming a new member is a separate transaction from registering for the convention. MLA membership is required to participate on a panel but not to register for the convention.

Complete program information will be available in the November issue of PMLA and on the MLA Web site. The Program is mailed to all MLA members and to attendees who register before mid-December.
