Welcome to the web site of the Kentucky Philological Association, Kentucky’s premier organization for the study of language and literature! For over forty years we have brought together outstanding scholars and creative writers from around the region for stimulating critical discussions of literature and reading of original literary works. Our annual journal, the Kentucky Philological Review , represents the best literary critical works from each year’s conference and is indexed by the Modern Language Association.

Outstanding features of the KPA include:

We also offer leadership opportunities in a state-wide organization.  If you are not yet a member of the KPA, we invite you to join us!

The 2020 KPA Conference will take place at Campbellsville University March 6-7.  Proposals for 2020 are now closed.  Registration, hotel information, and the Program are now available on the event page! Please join us for KPA 2020 in Campbellsville!
