Society for Comparative Literature and the Arts
Welcome to the Society for Comparative Literature and the Arts!
The aim of the of the Society for Comparative Literature
and the Arts (formerly Southern Comparative Literature Association) is to support and strengthen Comparative Literature and
Arts studies. The society strives to foster an interest in literature as a form of artistic expression beyond national and
linguistic boundaries, to help acquaint the community at large with the aims and values of comparative literature studies,
and to help place young scholars in academic positions where they may be effective as teachers and scholar-critics. In order
to achieve these goals the society holds meetings for the purpose of presenting and discussing studies in comparative literature
and arts and cooperates with other organizations interested in the attainment of these objectives.
