The American Association of Australasian Literary Studies (AAALS), established in 1986, is a professional organization with members in North America, Australasia, Europe, and Asia. An invitation to membership is extended to all those interested in Australian and New Zealand literature and culture specifically, and Postcolonial studies more generally. AAALS offers its members the opportunity to develop and express their interest in Australian and New Zealand literary and cultural studies through the following:

  • Subscription to Antipodes, a fully-refereed global journal of Australasian literature and culture. 
  • Access to the AAALS Newsletter, the source for information regarding events and activities within the organization.
  • An annual Australasian literary and cultural studies conference that provides a forum for the presentation of scholarly work and social interaction with other members of the academic community. 
  • A network of scholars and friends who share an interest in Australasian literature and culture.
