The annual conference of the American Literature Association is scheduled to take place in Boston May 27-30, 2021. See our scholarly research page for information about the roundtables we are sponsoring.
We hope that an in-person annual conference will be feasible in 2021. If so, it will be in Gloucester on the weekend of September 11-12, 2021.
