American Comparative Literature Association

2015 Annual Meeting

The American Comparative Literature Association's 2015 Annual Meeting will take place at the Sheraton Seattle in Seattle, Washington March 26-29, 2015.  The ACLA's annual conferences have a distinctive structure in which most papers are grouped into twelve-person seminars that meet two hours per day for three days of the conference to foster extended discussion. Some eight-person (or smaller) seminars meet just the first two days of the conference. This structure allows each participant to be a full member of one seminar, and to sample other seminars during the remaining time blocks. The conference also includes plenary sessions, workshops and roundtable discussions, a business meeting, a banquet, and other events.  For further details regarding the conference/registration, see
