2022 MLA Virtual Exhibit

In anticipation of the 2022 Modern Language Association Convention, we would like to invite you to save 40% on the recent books in literary studies featured here—including new entries from our series Page and Screen, Studies in Print Culture and the History of the Book, Veterans, African American Intellectual History, Childhoods: Interdisciplinary Perspectives on Children and Youth, and more!

We are also excited to announce the launch of the series, Becoming Modern: Studies in the Long Nineteenth Century, edited by Elizabeth A. Fay. Locating modernity in unexpected times and places and amongst neglected constellations of people, institutions, and ideas across the Atlantic world, the projects in this series explore the rapid social, political, and technological changes that unfolded during this period.

If you have projects underway that seem like a good match for our list, we would encourage you to schedule a virtual meeting with Senior Editor, Brian Halley. Please visit his Calendly page to view available time slots.

Fine print: promo code MAS042 expires on February 28, 2022.
