CLAI is the word
The Comparative Literature Association of Ireland was created in 2007. Ireland's higher education sector is rich in comparative studies, with postgraduate degree courses, undergraduate options, research groups and centres being set up in several institutions. Amid these shared methodologies and interests, concerns and approaches, the Association fosters dialogue between colleagues inside and outside Ireland, and a forum for discussion and debate. As a country that brings together different national histories and cultures, full of language diversity, living on the edge of Europe and connected to the outside world in so many ways, Ireland is a natural site for comparative studies.
Projects: email discussion groups, website, conferences, journal
CLAI is starting from the simplest level: listing who's who, making
links between people and groups, providing an email forum, launching
topics for discussion, announcing forthcoming events. We will organize
meetings and small conferences, moving to larger events and
publications in order to foster future research.
