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.
We hold a conference each year early in March somwhere in Kentucky. This 2019's Kentucky Philological Association Meeting and Conference will be at the University of Pikeville. We'll hope to see you there!
In the mean time, please join us on our new forum, The KPA In Action. Please join us there and add to the conversation!
As most people know, the KPA had a problem with our web hosting provider in February 2018. We've parked the site on a temporary host through March 2018. After that, we will be moving to another hosting company. We apologise for the rather hasty nature of the changes. The site will be fully rebuilt and back up in late April or in early May.
