The International Federation for Modern Languages and Literatures (FILLM) is the official international body which represents the study of language and literature as research-based scholarly disciplines in universities and tertiary higher education institutions world-wide.

FILLM seeks to develop and encourage the scholarly study of modern and medieval languages and literatures. This aim is pursued through forms of international scholarly cooperation which bring together detailed research on particular topics with themes and approaches of global relevance and general application. In practical terms, FILLM

  • organizes a triennial International Congress and other scholarly gatherings;
  • publishes works of scholarship;
  • draws attention to outstanding achievement in linguistic and literary scholarship from all over the world;
  • actively lobbies for the international maintenance and improvement of education and research in the field of languages and literatures;
  • and maintains a website and newsletter as a discussion forum for scholars in the field of languages and literatures world-wide.

At present FILLM’s overall strategy is to further increase its outreach, impact and usefulness.



The 28th International Congress of FILLM will take place at the University of Vienna, Austria in July 2020.  The local organizers is FILLM Vice-President Dr. Adams Bodomo (University of Vienna, Austria).
