The Rocky Mountain Modern Language Association was established in 1947 to promote critical inquiry, teaching, and research in the fields of languages, literatures and the humanities by holding a convention every fall for the presentation and discussion of research in these and related fields.

David Denny is chair of the Department of Culture & Media Studies at Marylhurst. His interests are critical theory, psychoanalysis, modern literature and philosophy, and film studies. He recently reviewed Zero Dark Thirty on the Marylhurst blog.
