The ICLA Research Committee on Religion, Ethics, and Literature

The committee has had a busy two years. We have had events in the U.S,, India, and Austria. At each event, we've seen our membership increase to the extent that we can no longer post membership in one column on our front page. To view membership, please follow the link in the Membership Information column.
