CFP: BCLA 14th Triennial Conference

The Fourteenth Triennial Conference of the British Comparative Literature Association  will be held at the University of Wolverhampton, UK from 12-15 July 2016.

 The theme of the conference is ‘Salvage’, a concept at the very heart of much literary and cultural activity. Translation, reception, re-reading – the vital substance of comparative literary research – all refer to processes by which literature’s significance is activated or released in acts of salvage, acts of saving and, indeed, salvation.

Paper and panel proposers are invited to consider incorporating this and other anniversaries into their abstracts where a convergence between the anniversary in question and the theme of Salvage can be credibly established.

Deadline for individual paper proposals: 30 December 2015

Deadline for panel proposals: 30 December 2015

Please see the conference website for further information.
