The South Atlantic Modern Language Association (SAMLA) is an organization of teachers, scholars, and graduate students dedicated to the advancement of teaching and literary and linguistic scholarship in the modern languages. SAMLA membership extends throughout the southeastern United States and includes members from across the country and around the world. South Atlantic Review, formerly the South Atlantic Bulletin, was established in 1935 as the official publication of SAMLA.
