The Rocky Mountain Modern Language Association, one of six independent regional branches of the
Modern Language Association, is a non-profit, professional organization, established
in 1947 to promote critical inquiry, teaching, and research in the fields of languages,
literatures, and the humanities by holding a convention every fall for the presentation and discussion of research in
these and related fields, and by regularly publishing a print and an electronic scholarly journal,
Mountain Review. Members come from the Rocky Mountain region of the U.S. and Canada,
as well as from several other states, provinces and countries.
