The objectives of ACLALS are to promote and coordinate Commonwealth Literature Studies, organize seminars and workshops, arrange lectures by writers and scholars, publish a newsletter about activities in the field of Commonwealth Literature and hold one conference triennially. The last conference took place in August 2013 in St Lucia in the Caribbean, and the next edition will be held in Stellenbosch, South Africa, in July 2016.
Membership in ACLALS is offered through its local branches in Commonwealth countries. Please email the chairpersons of the branches for further information.
