As of 2010, the Western Literature Association has affiliate status with the Modern Language Association. What does this mean for WLA? This affiliate status guarantees the WLA to be able to present a panel at each MLA Conference. The first such panel was presented during the January 6-9, 2011, MLA Conference in Los Angeles, California.
The next MLA conventions will take place in Chicago.
If you are interested in participating in a WLA panel at a future MLA Conference, please contact Elisabeth Bayley.
