Examples

Interviews (style.mla.org): 

  • MLA Handbook 8th edition treats interviews like published sources. 

Lansbury, Angela. Off-camera:

     Conversations with the Makers of Prime-Time

     Television. Interview yy Richard Levinson

     and William Link. Plume-NAL, 1986. 72-86.

 

Gordimer, Nadine. Interview. New York Times 10

     Oct. 1991, late ed.: C25.

 

Wiesel, Elie. Interview by Ted Koeppel. Nightline.

     ABC. WABC, 18 Apr. 2002.

  • Prior editions of the MLA Handbook required you to explain the above was on television.  No more.
  • By mentioning the venue and the city, it is assumed in the 8th edition, that you are referencing a live performance (p. 50).
  • You can offer a medium at the end of the citation, as with previous editions; but 8th edition says that is optional.

 


 

Speech

Alter, Robert, and Marilynne Robinson. "The Psalms:

     A Reading and Conversation." 92nd Street Y, New

     York. 17 Dec. 2007.

  • Prior editions of the MLA Handbook required you to explain the above was a reading.  No more.
  • By mentioning the venue and the city, it is assumed in the 8th edition, that you are referencing a live performance (p. 50).
  • You can offer a medium at the end of the citation, as with previous editions; but 8th edition says that is optional.

 


 

Play / Performance (pp. 38, 50-4):

Heartbreak House. Directed by George

     Bernard Shaw. Performance by Robin

     Lefevre. Philip Bosco and Swoosie

     Kurtz. Roundabout Theatre Company. Amer.

     Airlines Theatre, New York. 1 Oct. 2006.

     Performance by James Stewart, Donna

     Reed, Lionel Barrymore, and Thomas

     Mitchell. RKO, 1946.

  • It is optional to indicate a medium at the end of the citation.
  • Otherwise, 8th edition assumes that anyone searching for the resource would find that it is a film.


Youtube - MLA does not specify how to cite Youtube videos.  The following is guesswork:

Kamara666. "The Hampsterdance Song." Youtube, 5 May 2007.

      https://youtu.be/1qN72LEQnaU. 

 


Tweet (p. 24):

  • MLA Handbook 8th edition allows for pseudonyms to be used in place of the author, especially because the author is often unknown.

Last name, First name. "Tweet in its entirety." 

      Twitter, Date, Time.

Jones, Jason. "My extra sensitive toothpaste is

      jealous of other toothpastes."  Twitter,

     25 May 2013.  4:04 PM. 



or



@ConcreteJones. "My extra sensitive toothpaste

     is jealous of other toothpastes." Twitter, 25

     May 2013. 4:04 PM.
