Citing Lectures

Back to Helpful Handouts o Writing Center Home Page

Due to popular demand, here is the MLA format for citing lectures:

Lecturer's name. "Title of lecture." Meeting. Name of sponsoring organization. Location of lecture, date.

Note: If you do not know the title of the lecture, or the lecture does not have a title, simply write "lecture" or "address." (Without the quotation marks, of course.)

Examples:

Litfin, Karen. "Introduction to Political Economy." Political Science 203. University of Washington. Seattle, 16 October 2000.

LaVaque-Manty, Mika. "Gendered Citizenship Revisited." Political Science 318. University of Washington. Seattle, 16 October 2000.
