Perspectives on Contemporary Legend

Perspectives on Contemporary Legend, the Meeting of the International Society for Contemporary Legend Research, is held annually, historically alternating between North America in odd-numbered years and Europe in even – the Corona crisis in 2020 turned this upside down: North America in even years, Europe in odd ones. It is a small, convivial conference of scholars working on this dynamic field of inquiry.

    • Hi Andrea. As you may have noticed by now, the 2019 conference in Tarragona had to be skipped due to COVID-19. The conference will now be held from June 28 to July 2. However, the meeting will be held online using Zoom because of Corona. If you are already a member of ISCLR for 2021, the conference costs will be low: 12 USD (which also allows you to view the recorded presentations at a later date).
