The American Comparative Literature Association's 2021 Annual Meeting
Our April 8-11, 2021 conference, originally planned as an on-site conference at the Palais de Congrès convention center in Montreal, will now be fully virtual. We ask for your understanding and your cooperation as we host our first annual meeting in a digital environment that will include the same familiar features: pre-conference workshops, keynote panel, awards ceremony, the usual three days of seminars, networking opportunities, and a book fair that will feature academic presses.
To that end we are also lifting our restrictions on graduate student participation in a seminar. The requirement that all seminars have no more than 50% of graduate students is no longer valid for 2021. We urge organizers, faculty, and students to ensure that a seminar has representation across ranks so that we mutually benefit from energetic, illuminating, and stimulating papers and discussions.
