The American Comparative Literature Association is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. We rely on memberships to support our operations to organize our annual conference which benefits over 3,000 scholars each year. Membership payments also go towards reserving future conference sites, publishing a conference program, and offering travel grants / registration waivers. 

ACLA membership no longer includes membership of the International Comparative Literature Association (ICLA), but ACLA members can subscribe to the ICLA for only $10/year. Click on the following links for full ICLA membership information or to go directly to credit card payment.
