About the ADE Bulletin
The ADE Bulletin is the journal of the Association of Departments of English, a subsidiary of the Modern Language Association of America. Since 1964, the Bulletin has published articles of professional interest to English educators, scholars, and administrators in postsecondary institutions. The Bulletin publishes articles and surveys dealing with professional, pedagogical, curricular, and departmental issues. Manuscripts should be prepared according to the MLA Style Manual and submitted as a Word attachment to or in duplicate to Annie Reiser, Modern Language Association, 85 Broad Street, suite 500, New York, NY 10004-2434. Please include your postal and e-mail addresses and telephone number.

Individual Access
Departmental Membership: Access to the complete archives of both the ADE and ADFL bulletins is free to graduate students and faculty members in departments that are members of the ADE or the ADFL. If your current department or the department from which you received your graduate degree is a member, it can provide you with the department ID and password to log in at the ADE or ADFL Web site. When you log in, you will be asked to create your own personal log-in information for the ADE or ADFL Web site. Note: you must create a new personal log-in for each new subscription year; personal log-ins from previous years will not be recognized.
Affiliate Membership: Individuals not currently affiliated with an ADE- or ADFL-member department can access the bulletin archives by becoming affiliate members of the ADE or the ADFL. Dues for affiliate memberships are $15 for MLA members and $45 for nonmembers. Affiliate memberships can be purchased online with a credit card and are for the use of a single individual only.
