About Profession

Profession carries articles that focus on the fields of modern languages and literatures as a profession. Topics include current intellectual, curricular, and institutional trends and issues as well as relevant public policy debates. Essays selected for the journal can be read with interest and profit by many, if not all, MLA members.

Profession accepts submissions on a rolling basis, and articles selected by the editorial collective are published in the publicly available journal throughout the year. A free e-book is published annually. Submissions of 1,000 to 4,000 words may be sent in a format compatible with Microsoft Word to profession@mla.org.

Download the 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2014 issues of Profession for your e-reader.
