It is with great reluctance that we announce that the 2022 ACLA Conference scheduled to take place in Taipei in June will be held virtually. 

The ongoing pandemic and Taiwan's quarantine policy now press us into taking the difficult decision to shift the conference from in-person to almost fully virtual. Events will still take place at the National Taiwan Normal University with some events live-streamed and others recorded and streamed for viewing during the conference and for a short period afterwards. The Seminars will all be hosted in our virtual platform and will be scheduled in North American Pacific Standard Time. We regret that we must take this step, and we have done so in full consultation with our Taiwan partners.

We want to affirm the importance for ACLA of international conferences; the decision to hold our conference in Asia for the first time was also a commitment to the "new" comparative literature, now for most of us no longer new. We sincerely hope that we will one day be able to meet together at NTNU and when normal travel begins again, we are committed to finding a way to connect the ACLA with our new found collaborators at NTNU, whose careful planning envisioned a remarkable event.
