The fourth annual conference of the International Society for Late Antique Literary Studies (ISLALS) will convene on the campuses of Bryn Mawr College and Haverford College on October 21–22, 2016. The organizers for this year’s conference, in despair of capturing under a single rubric all the exciting new work being done in late antique literary studies, issue an open call for all papers on late antique literature qua literature. Close analyses of a single textual moment in poetry or prose; sweeping surveys of author, genre, image, or trope; precise detective work on a long nettlesome crux; and paradigm-shifting theoretical diatribe are all encouraged.
