Book reviews help scholars keep abreast of their own and other fields, and choose what to read; they are also important for discussion of the state of scholarship. Members are encouraged to propose a review of a recent book of relevance to our readership. Please address proposals and inquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Members of the MMLA are invited and encouraged to submit articles to the JMMLA.

Please check our website for calls for submissions. Spring issue submissions will be due by the preceding September 15. Fall issue submissions will be due by the preceding April 15.

Graduate students presenting at the annual MMLA Convention are invited to submit their papers for consideration for the annual Graduate Student Paper Prize. The submission deadline falls in October of each convention year.
