The South Central Modern Language Association officially includes the states of Texas, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Louisiana, Arkansas, and Mississippi, but our members now range far and wide, both in the United States and abroad.  Our mission is to enhance our members’ involvement in scholarship, teaching, and research in the modern languages and literatures.  We accomplish this through an annual conference held in one of our region’s popular cities; awards supporting travel, research, and conference papers; two annual newsletters containing calls for papers, grant announcements, member news, etc.; and the three times a year journal, South Central Review.  We welcome new and established scholars to join us in promoting emerging and traditional approaches to language and literary study.

The Executive Offices of the South Central Modern Language Association are located on the Norman campus of the University of Oklahoma.
