Every three years, the Association Internationale de Littérature Comparée/International Comparative Literature Association (AILC/ICLA) holds the world's largest congress on Comparative Literature. This year it will take place from 29 July to 2 August at the University of Macau. Topic: Literature of the World and the Future of Comparative Literature.
Our plan for Macau
The team of avldigital.de will also be there! In 2016, we already had an information booth at the 21st ICLA Congress in Vienna. This time we will bring presentations and flyers to the Chinese Special Administrative Region and focus on networking. We arranged for a series of presentations for representatives of ICLA Research Committees and national scholary associations. Our idea is to build an international network of multipliers who provide us with content, news and contacts from their respective research communities. Thus, we will be able to respresent the global developments in the field even better on avldigital.de.
avldigital.de: An international platform for Comparative Literature
avldigital.de is to be developed to an international nexus of communication within the field: The German (speaking) Comparative Literature community will be able to get information on publications and activities of their colleagues abroad, while using the portal as a showcase for their own work. To international scholars, research institutions or professional associations, avldigital.de will offer the opportunity to present their work, activities and publications and to network with their German and international colleagues.
Clear the stage for avldigital.de
On 31 July 2019, to our great pleasure, we have the opportunity to present avldigital.de at a prominent place – right after the keynote lectures of Prof. Zhu Shoutong (University of Macao) and Prof. Wang Ning (Shanghai Jiao Tong University). While there, we also show our brand new video clip about the portal:
Throughout the week, we will be discussing further possibilities for cooperation with the ICLA Research Committees, such as the systematic integration of publication series into the Finding literature catalogue index, the open access transformation by means of CompaRe, or the use of the Networking module to communicate the committees' activities to the community.
