EUROLIT, a conference for the evaluation of literary studies in Europe, will be held in Cologne, Germany, from 14 to 15 June 1996. The conference is organized by the University of Cologne with the support of the European Commission.

The study of literature, despite the diversity of national cultures, is an important area for European integration and cooperation. The conference will review the initiatives in the field in recent years, particularly those under the Community's ERASMUS and, more recently, SOCRATES action programmes in the field of education.

The conference will feature both plenary sessions and work groups. There will be five work groups covering the following topics:

- The European dimension in literary studies;
- Literature and communication theory;
- The problem of approach: literary history versus literary theory;
- Literature in a digitalized world;
- How should European literature be taught.
