The International Association for Philosophy and Literature was established in 1976 and is dedicated to the exchange of ideas and scholarly research within the humanities. Founded to provide a context for the interplay of Philosophy, Literary Theory, and Cultural / Aesthetic / Textual Studies, the IAPL brings together scholars from the full range of disciplines concerned with philosophical, historical, critical, and theoretical issues.
With its focus on interdisciplinary topics and concerns, the IAPL, since its founding in the mid-1970s, has represented and participated in many of the most vital and exciting developments at the intersection of philosophy and literature. The association's annual meetings provide a unique opportunity for dialogue and the exchange of ideas, the articulation of contemporary themes and topics, the exploration of various expressive arts, and the production of new theoretical discourses.
