Indexes books and articles published on modern languages, literatures, folklore, and film.
The definitive index for the study of language, literature, linguistics, rhetoric and composition, folklore, film, dramatic arts, and the history of printing and publishing, covering scholarly publications from the 1920s to the present. It is produced by the Modern Language Association (MLA), an organization dedicated to the study and teaching of language and literature.
International in scope, it includes over 2.7 million citations to journal articles, books, articles in books, series, translations, scholarly editions, websites, and dissertations from 6,000+ periodicals (including peer-reviewed e-journals) and 1,200 book publishers. While the majority of records are from English-language publications, at least sixty other languages are represented including French, Spanish, German, Russian, Portuguese, Norwegian, and Swedish.
Includes the MLA Directory of Periodicals and the MLA Thesaurus, a collection of thousands of subject terms and personal names used in indexing the bibliography.
