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 2021 Convention Materials in CORE
You can share your convention materials in CORE. Each deposit gets a DOI and structured metadata, which helps people find it. Material shared in CORE is publicly accessible, so you can share the DOI with anyone (no log-in required). It will also appear on your Commons profile.
Check that you're a member of the 2021 MLA Convention group on the Commons so that you can share your deposits with the group. You'll also find more information there about depositing convention materials in CORE.
If your Humanities Commons account isn't reflecting your MLA membership, contact mla [at] hcommons.org to ensure you get full access to MLA Commons.
Collaborate, connect, and share work
Post in groups related to your interests. You're automatically joined to your MLA forums' groups on the Commons, plus you can join other groups or create new ones.
Bringing Your Course Online
The MLA's Bringing Your Course Online Commons site includes strategies for teaching remotely, information addressing questions of equity and accessibility, and a collection of resource guides.
Add your suggestions or questions by submitting a resource on the site or contacting mla [at] hcommons.org.
