Mission Statement IAUPE
The general frame of non-competitive intellectual discussion among peers ensures a very friendly atmosphere, most conducive to constructive criticism and the fruitful development of shared research interests. The social programme is an integral part of our conferences, as it extends the opportunities for conversation, while at the same time offering insights into cultures with which we are less (or sometimes not at all) familiar.
In today’s conflict-riven and specialist-driven world it seems more necessary than ever to provide spaces for face-to-face exchanges between members of diverse textual communities and different fields of Anglophone Studies. IAUPE offers a forum where we can practise what we teach: curiosity, diligence, tolerance, and polished cutting-edge papers.
IAUPE members nominating candidates for admission are encouraged to refer to this mission statement when considering nominees who will help IAUPE accomplish its mission.
