We’re inviting scholars join our conference, “From Here to There: Diversity and Interdisciplinarity in the Practice of Comparative Literature” in Toronto! The annual Congress of the Canadian Comparative Literature Association will take place from 28 to 30 May 2017 at Ryerson University. Historically attracting attendees from various literary disciplines, the annual CCLA Congress is organized in conjunction with the Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences and hosted by a different Canadian university each year. The CCLA develops a three-day of presentations, keynote lecture, AGM, and pub night. Scholars, professors, and students from across Canada and abroad meet, share ideas and engage in discussions with comparative perspectives to promote intercultural understanding. Join us! CFP: CCLA Congress 2017—From Here to There: Diversity and Interdisciplinarity in the Practice of Comparative Literature The comparative study of literatures and cultures facilitates the understanding of exchanges, border-crossings and cross-cultural negotiations in a globalizing world. The juxtaposition and comparison of a wide variety of diverse ideas, locations, cultures, and schools of thought inspire collaboration across different disciplines, offering manifold methodological and theoretical challenges but also opening up infinite possibilities for exploring new interdisciplinary formations and approaches. From May 28 to 30, 2017, as part of the Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences of Canada hosted by Ryerson University, the Canadian Comparative Literature Association (CCLA) invites scholars to explore the theme “From Here to There: Diversity and Interdisciplinary in the Practice of Comparative Literature.” How do we read across different cultures, time periods, media, and disciplines? What are the connections among various themes, theories, and concepts? In what ways can Comparative Literature portray or imagine cross-cultural contacts and exchange possibilities? What kinds of theoretical approaches can we adopt to interpret literature that can critically engage readers in a culturally diverse world? Comparative papers on other topics are also welcome and will be collected into general sessions. Proposals for pre-arranged panels, roundtables, and innovative formats are strongly encouraged. Joint sessions with other organizations are also very welcome but should be arranged as soon as possible. Please submit 250-300 word abstracts for 20-minute presentations, as Word attachments, to Program Chair Dr. Jessica Tsui-Yan Li ( by December 15, 2016
