Dear Dr. Eggert,

I am the Coordinator of Contributing Scholars Programs at the Modern 
Language Association, and I am writing regarding two opportunities for 
your members to contribute to the/ MLA International Bibliography/ and 
share important scholarship in your field. The MLA is currently seeking 
new field bibliographers, and we are also accepting applications for 
three-year /MLA Bibliography fellowships/. Because we would like to 
enrich our coverage of Korean literature and language, we believe that 
members of the Association for Korean Studies in Europe might welcome 
the opportunity to become contributors to the Bibliography.

The/ MLA International Bibliography/ database is an essential humanities 
research tool providing access to print and electronic books and 
articles published on modern languages, literatures, dramatic arts 
(theater, film, television, opera, and radio), folklore, linguistics, 
pedagogy, rhetoric, and writing studies. It is compiled by the staff of 
the MLA Office of Bibliographic Information Services with the 
cooperation of approximately 100 volunteer specialists called field 
bibliographers. The primary responsibility of bibliographers is to 
record the bibliographic information of scholarly documents and to 
define their subject, content, and form.

Field bibliographers for the /MLA International Bibliography/ perform an 
important service for the profession and receive institutional 
recognition while deepening their knowledge of the field, sharpening 
their research skills, and exploring new areas of inquiry.

For your members willing to submit at least one hundred citations per 
year over the course of a three-year commitment, we are accepting 
applications for /MLA Bibliography/ fellowships. Applications must be 
received by 1 April 2021 for our fellowships that run from 1 July 2021 
to 30 June 2024. On completion of the fellowship, fellows receive a 
stipend of $500 and a certificate presented at the MLA Convention awards 
ceremony. For fellows attending training sessions at the MLA Annual 
Convention, conference registration fees are waived.

For more information about becoming a field bibliographer, members can

I am also attaching a flier about our fellowships, in case it makes it 
easier for you to share the information about this opportunity.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions.

Best regards,
Chriselle Tidrick
