Welcome to the MLA 125th Anniversary Celebration page!
We will be updating this page throughout our 125th Anniversary year so please check back often for additional information.
To commemorate the 125th anniversary of MLA, we are collecting video selfies! Below are some suggestions to get you started. The only rule is that it cannot be longer than 2 minutes!
Make your selfie and send it to MLA125video@gmail.com. We’ll post the videos on our YouTube channel as well as show them at the conference at the MLA 125th table. You can have a duo selfie or a bunch of people from your workplace. If you need directions as to how to record a video selfie see below. Whatever you do have fun!
