Division Executive Committees for the 2015 Convention Year (13 Jan. 2014–11 Jan. 2015)

MLA divisions encompass the primary scholarly and professional concerns of the association, with each of the eighty-eight divisions representing a major area of membership interest. Divisions promote scholarly and professional activities within their areas of concern. MLA members have the option of joining up to four divisions. (If you are an MLA member and wish to review or update your division affiliations, please click here.)

Each division is governed by an elected executive committee whose five members serve terms of five convention years. A convention year begins after the close of one convention and continues through the close of the next; it is named for the convention that concludes the year. Listed here are the division executive committees for the 2015 convention year (13 Jan. 2014 through 11 Jan. 2015). The date that follows the name of each executive committee member designates the convention that concludes the final convention year of the committee member’s term and, thus, the final January convention that falls within his or her term of service. The listings below indicate which committee members are currently serving as chair and secretary. Normally, this year's secretary becomes next year's chair.

Beginning with the 2016 convention, existing divisions and discussion groups will become forums, and new forums approved in 2014 will be represented by executive committees. More information about the new forum structure is available on MLA Commons.
