We are pleased to announce that the Fourteenth Triennial Conference of the British Comparative Literature Association (www.bcla.org) will be held at the University of Wolverhampton, UK (www.wlv.ac.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.

Second call for paper and panel proposals Deadline for individual paper proposals: 30 December 2016 Deadline for panel proposals: 30 December 2015

Please visit our website (see above) for further information about the conference (plenary speakers, programme and activities, fees, accommodation), how to submit a paper and panel proposal and how to register.
