Our Boston Location: In 2019, the American Literature Association will return to Boston and to the Westin Copley in the Back Bay for our 30th Annual Conference.
Conference Details: For the 2019 conference, the ALA will again rely on electronic submission of program information and conference proposals. As usual, the societies that make up the American Literature Association will organize much of the program. Individual societies will issue their own calls for papers, which will be listed on the ALA website as well as on the societies’ own websites and publications. Guidelines for author societies are detailed toward the end of this notice.
Individuals may also propose papers or panels to the conference director by January 30, 2019. Preference will be given to papers and panels that represent authors, genres, or topics that are not covered by the societies that make up the ALA.
