PMLA is the journal of the Modern Language Association of America. Since 1884 PMLA has published members’ essays judged to be of interest to scholars and teachers of language and literature. Four issues each year (January, March, May, and October) present essays on language and literature, and the November issue is the program for the association’s annual convention. (Up until 2009, there was also an issue in September, the Directory, containing a listing of the association’s members, a directory of departmental administrators, and other professional information. Its contents are now online.) Each issue of PMLA is sent directly to about 26,000 college and university teachers of English and foreign languages who belong to the association and to about 1,800 libraries throughout the world.
