Established in the mid-1980s under its old name AACCL (American Association of Chinese Comparative Literature), the Association of Chinese & Comparative Literature is one of the very few scholarly organizations in the world devoted exclusively to literary studies in the China field. The Association promotes exchanges between scholars working in the field of Chinese and Comparative Literature in the U.S., China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Canada, Europe, and Australia.
