Statement of the ACLA Executive Committee on Immigration Executive Order:

img-acla-logo“By its nature, comparative literature is a discipline which demands dialogue within and across national borders. The free movement of students and scholars, to and from universities, academic conferences, and other places of research and teaching, is therefore of the utmost importance to our discipline. In turn, the discipline and practices of comparative literature are important for fostering mutual understanding and respect across and among cultures, languages, ethnicities, religions, and national boundaries.”
