The 39th Congress of the Société française de littérature générale et comparée (SFLGC) will be held on 15-17 October 2014 at the Institute for Comparative Literature, University of Strasbourg. The title of this year’s conference has been designated as ‘Littérature et expériences croisées de la guerre. Apports comparatistes’. The title is inspired by the centenary of World War I and will be devoted to the literary representations of war.
The Congress will be coinciding with the opening of the exhibition entitled ‘1914: La Mort des poètes (Charles Péguy, Wilfred Owen, Ernst Stadler)’ at the Bibliothèque Nationale et Universitaire de Strasbourg (BNU) which explores the deaths of three poets during World War I.
