Call for Papers for the 21st ICLA Congress

The 21st Congress of the International Comparative Literature Association (ICLA) will be held at the University of Vienna, Austria on 21-27 July 2016. The congress theme is ‘the many languages of comparative literature’. In 2016, for the first time, the theme of a congress organised by the ICLA will be ‘language’ – language in all its meanings and embedded in various contexts.

The ICLA Congress is organised under five sections:

  • The arts as universal code
  • Language – The essence of world literature
  • Many cultures, many idioms
  • The language of thematics
  • Comparatists at work – professional communication

Proposals, which may be written in English, German, or French, are invited for topics related to these five sections. The deadline is 31 August 2015.
