The annual meeting of IALJS is an international conference devoted to the scholarly study, teaching, and practice of literary journalism. The deadline for submission of research papers, work-in-progress abstracts, and panel proposals for the annual conference is early December, and the two-and-a-half day event, open to both faculty and students, is traditionally held in mid-May. In addition, IALJS actively participates in the conferences of a number of other learned societies, sponsoring sessions focusing on related aspects of literary journalism.

Update (February 6, 2021)
The committee organizing the 2021 IALJS Conference has determined that, with the Covid-19 pandemic currently unresolved and with the prospects for a return to normalcy by the May date of the conference uncertain, the surest way forward is to hold IALJS-15 virtually.
The conference will be mounted through Zoom with the host, the University of Copenhagen, providing the technical support. Conference sessions will be held on May 20-22, 2021, between 3 pm and 8 pm Copenhagen time. While participants will be offered the option of pre-recording their presentations, the conference will be mainly synchronous.
All participants will by now have received a poll inquiring about their plans to participate in the 2021 IALJS conference. We are publishing this conference update to help guide their response to the poll questions. Further updates will be published on the IALJS website shortly.
