Modern Language Association 6-9 January 2011 – Los Angeles, California

Intellect joined nearly 10,000 attendees at this year’s Modern Language Association conference in Los Angeles, California. The MLA Annual Convention is the largest and most influential for scholars of languages and literature in North America.  The event is international in scope—over a three-day period, representatives from nearly 100 different countries contributed to over 800 panel sessions.

Masoud Yazdani, the founder of Intellect, flew in from the UK to attend. Also representing Intellect was North American representative, Amy Damutz. This was Intellect’s first time exhibiting at MLA, and we were pleased to introduce our latest books and journal portfolio to scholars.

Both Masoud and I had time to meet potential authors and editors, learn about your projects and share Intellect’s ethos and publishing goals during the event.  Thanks to all who came by and discussed your work with us.  We look forward to receiving new proposals and journal submissions.  You’re encouraged to examine the Publish with us section of our website or contact me directly at with any questions.  It was a special pleasure to have Susan Ingram, author of Berliner Chic in attendance.

While in Los Angeles, Intellect joined the Council of Editors of Learned Journals (CELJ), an allied organization of the MLA.  Masoud Yazdani contributed to CELJ’s panel session which allowed journal editors to discuss common concerns, share their collective editorial expertise, and offer advice to fledgling editors.

Thanks to organizers for a great conference.  We look forward to seeing you at next year’s MLA convention 5-8 January 2012 in Seattle!
