In the exhibit hall at the MLA convention, attendees have access to a wide range of publishers, from small independent journals to large international booksellers. In honor of University Press Week (6–11 November 2017), we’d like to shine a light on those university presses that will be exhibiting at the 2018 MLA convention in New York City.
More than thirty university presses will exhibit at the 2018 convention. Some, like NYU Press and Columbia University Press, are a quick subway ride away. Others, like Stanford University Press and University of Nebraska Press, will be traveling from across the country, and some, like Edinburgh University Press and University of Toronto Press, will be traveling from outside the United States. Some seem to have been around forever, like Cambridge University Press, Oxford University Press, and Johns Hopkins University Press, while others, like University Press of Mississippi and SUNY Press, are relative newcomers.
All these presses exhibit at the MLA convention to provide attendees with access to the most recent publications, often at a great discount. Be sure to visit the exhibit hall and browse among the wide variety of exhibitors. You may find your next favorite book to read or teach, or your next favorite subject to explore, while also catching up with friends and meeting editors.
Located in two halls in the New York Hilton Midtown (Rhinelander Hall, second floor, and Americas I, third floor), the exhibit hall opens on the second day of the convention. The hours are 9:00 a.m.–6:00 p.m. on 5 and 6 January and 9:00 a.m.–1:00 p.m. on 7 January.
