A tribute to his life and work
British Comparative Literature Association (BCLA), founded in 1975,
aims to promote the scholarly study of literature without confinement
to national and linguistic boundaries, and in relation to other
disciplines. The BCLA's primary interests are in literature, the
contexts of literature and the interaction between literatures.
Through its regular publications, its conferences and other activities the Association:
research along comparative, intercultural and interdisciplinary lines,
as well as in the fields of general literary studies and literary theory
fosters the exchange and renewal of critical ideas and concepts
keeps its members informed about national and international developments in the study of literature
provides a forum
for personal and institutional academic contacts, both within Britain
and with Associations and individuals in other countries
The revised Constitution contains a fuller description of the BCLA's aims and objectives.
