Transition to New Forum Structure

At the 2015 convention, the Delegate Assembly will consider proposed constitutional amendments to change references to “divisions and discussion groups” to “forums” in the MLA constitution to accommodate the new forum structure. If the assembly approves the amendments, the membership will then be asked to vote on them in the spring. While these changes are pending, Web pages and other documents that deal with the 2016 convention—including those for submitting calls for papers—will begin to refer to the entities as “forums”; other materials on the site will retain the older terms until after the ratification of the constitutional amendments.
