The Second Postgraduate Symposium of the Comparative Literature Association of Ireland seeks to build on the success of last year’s event. This year again it is hoped to gather together interested academics and postgraduates for purposes both of intellectual engagement and to share experiences on the more practical matters of conducting research and establishing a career.

We therefore invite contributions on the broad theme of “Literature and the Arts”. The conference will also host an ‘open strand’ in order to accommodate papers that do not fit the main topic. Workshops on the methodology of Comparative Literature, publishing and postgraduate training will be organized as part of the programme.

The conference is open not only to the broad community of postgraduate students in Comparative Literature, but also to all those who may be considering engaging in study or research in the field.

Presentations, in English, will last 20 minutes, with 10 minutes for discussion. PowerPoint facilities will be available.

Abstracts in English (no more than 300 words) should be sent to Caitríona Leahy (cleahy@tcd.ie) Marion Dalvai (dalvaim@tcd.ie) and Peter Arnds ( ) by Friday 16th October.

Proceedings will be considered for an online publication on the CLAI website (http://www.complit.org/).
