Forum’s Delegate Representative to the MLA Delegate Assembly:
Maritza Cárdenas; 2019-2022
But what, exactly, is an MLA forum supposed to do?
MLA forums—formerly divisions and discussion groups—encompass the scholarly and professional concerns of the association. They promote scholarly and professional activities within their areas of concern. More specifically, we organize sessions at the MLA by generating CFP’s and, often in conjunction with other forums, host a cash bar receptions.
Each forum 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.
You may reach any one of the executive committee members at any time via MLACommons.

    Latinx Studies at NYU Press

    Mon, December 13, 2021, from 6:00 PM – 7:30 PM EST

    On Monday, December 13, 2021, The Latinx Project is holding a feature of NYU Press books on Latinx Studies; including Jesica S. Fernández, author of Growing Up Latinx: Coming of Age in a Time of Contested Citizenship; Mary Beltran, author of the forthcoming Latino TV: A History; and Ana Y. Ramos-Zayas and Mérida M. Rúa, authors of Critical Dialogues in Latinx Studies.

    You can register for tonight’s online event here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/latinx-studies-at-nyu-press-tickets-205727304907

    My essay, “In pursuit of property and forgiveness: Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Hamilton and In the Heights,” appears in Critical Dialogues in Latinx Studies. The collection “offers a multidisciplinary, social-science oriented perspective on Latinx studies, including the social histories and contemporary lives of a diverse range of Latina and Latino populations.”
