The AAALS is pleased to announce its 33rd annual conference, to take place at New York University, Center for Applied Liberal Arts, on April 5-7, 2018. Peter Minter will be the featured poet and Brigitta Olubas will give the academic keynote; Peter Carey will give a reading on the first day of the conference. More special guests may be announced so please stay tuned for subsequent updates.

The topic is "Australian Literature as World Literature." Proposals on any aspect of Australian and New Zealand literature are welcomed. Particularly encouraged are papers that connect Australian and New Zealand literature of any era with works produced elsewhere or which place these works in a broader global context. Cosmopolitan, trans-Indigenous, Asia-Pacific, Global South, diasporic, digital humanities, book history and comparative approaches are welcome, as are any others that are relevant. Though the literatures of the Antipodes are worlded in many complex ways, discussion of ‘the global’ has tended to marginalize them. At a moment when the status of globalization itself seems problematic, this conference hopes to make an argument for the pertinence of literature from Australia and New Zealand to the global imaginative conversation.

Please send 300 word proposals to Nicholas Birns at by October 1, 2017.
