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.

    The next election for this forum’s Delegate Assembly representative will be held in the fall of 2024, and the forum’s executive committee will take up the matter of nominations for this election when it meets in January 2024. Though the executive committee is responsible for making nominations, it is required to nominate at least one candidate who has been suggested by the forum’s membership (unless there are too few suggestions). I write to encourage you to submit your suggestions for the forum’s assembly representative.

    Please go to https://governance.mla.hcommons.org for additional information about this election and Delegate Assembly service. If you would like to suggest yourself or another forum member for nomination, please send the following information by e-mail (governance@mla.org) or by private message here on the Commons ( @lneithardt): your name or the name of the member suggested; affiliation, department, and rank, if any; and a brief statement (100–200 words) of qualifications. The deadline for receipt of suggestions is 10 December 2023.
