Welcome to MLA Commons, the scholarly network for MLA members. Discover the latest open-access scholarship and teaching materials, join language and literature discussion groups, build a WordPress Web site for a class or conference—or to showcase your own work—and grow your readership by uploading materials to CORE, our open-access repository.
MLA Commons is part of the interdisciplinary Humanities Commons network.
Featured Event: Teaching Remotely CORE Deposit Party
Are you an educator? Has the pandemic challenged you to teach in new ways? Join the Teaching Remotely CORE Deposit Party, 26–30 July, an asynchronous event during which teachers can learn, share, and support each other.
You are invited to upload syllabi, assignments, blog posts, and conference presentations related to teaching and learning during the pandemic to the CORE repository and share them with the Teaching Remotely group. In addition, throughout the week we will highlight daily topics to spark conversation in the group’s discussion forum. The event's goal is to foster collective resource sharing to help teachers navigate the current moment and build for the future.
