The goal of the International Society for Polysystem Studies (ISPS) is to create and maintain an open and evolving forum for all those interested in, and dedicated to, the use and promotion of Polysystem Theory.
As an important initial step in the pursuit of this goal, we are convening the first annual meeting of the ISPS in Reykholt, Iceland on June 28th and 29th 2016. At that time professor Jose Lambert, a distinguished scholar whose work has been strongly influenced by Polysystem Theory, will deliver the first annual Itamar Even-Zohar Lecture. We expect to stage similar celebrations of the study of culture at various points around the globe in the coming years.
This conference is organized in co-operation with the Translation Center of the University of Iceland.
