The Modern Language Association congratulates the 2019 MLA Bibliography fellows who will serve from 2019 to 2022. The MLA International Bibliography staff members work with approximately one hundred field bibliographers, from all parts of the world, who cover subject areas, journals, and languages that cannot be indexed in the New York office. Each spring, five to ten fellowships are awarded to field bibliographers who, on completion of their fellowships, receive a stipend of $500 and a certificate during the awards ceremony at the MLA convention.
Congratulations to the following:
- Virginia M. Adán-Lifante, professor, University of California, Merced
- Margherita Berti, PhD candidate, University of Arizona
- Andrea D. Bryant, PhD candidate, Georgetown University
- Aedín N. Clements, Irish studies librarian, University of Notre Dame
- Angela Johnson, PhD candidate, Texas Woman’s University
- Mel Loucks, assistant professor, New Mexico Military Institute
- Molly Mathias, user experiences librarian, University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee
- Zsuzsanna Varga, lecturer, Glasgow University
- Roberta Wolfson, assistant professor, California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo
This year, fellows are learning to use the new MLA International Bibliography production platform, which will provide them with the opportunity to be more integrated in the indexing process. Following attendance at a series of four training webinars, which concluded this month, fellows will schedule individual sessions with MLA Bibliography staff members to fine-tune their indexing practices. We look forward to submissions from them in fields ranging from American literature to Hungarian literature to the teaching of language.
