The Réseau européen d'études littéraires comparées/European Network for Comparative Literary Studies (REELC/ENCLS) aims to provide a European space for interdisciplinary dialogues about culture, literature and literary studies and to facilitate exchanges of ideas and information among scholars and organisations committed to the study of general and comparative literature, promoting international collaborative research and teaching, generating relevant debates through publications and international conferences, enabling the circulation of students and staff, and generally supporting and internationalising the work of regional, national, cross-national associations.
Visit the REELC/ENCLS’ website ( that aims to be a useful tool for comparatists in Europe and beyond: please add your details and CVs, information on your institutions, courses, research projects, new jobs, conference or book announcements, calls for papers … anything relevant to comparative literature! The site has a fully searchable database, and the more information is logged on, the more useful it will be. The Forum page allows the REELC/ENCLS members to have discussions on particular topics too.
The network’s newsletter additionally provides information on events and publications in comparative literature.
Every two years the REELC/ENCLS organises a congress in a European country. The next conference will take place in Irland (Dublin and Galway), 24-28 August 2015, on the theme of “Longing and Belonging”. For more information see the REELC/ENCLS website.
