Welcome to the web presence of the Ralph Ellison Society.

Feel very free to leave any comments or suggestions on our blog.
The Ralph Ellison Society is a group of scholars and writers who share a fascination with the work of Ralph Ellison and who work to interpret, comment upon, and add to the growing body of scholarship about Ralph Ellison and his writings. We were founded in Boston in 2011 at the American Literature Association Conference, and each year we gather at the annual ALA conference for our Business Meeting and to present papers on Ellison’s work. We also organize other events each year in support of our work and contribute writings in various venues about Ellison studies.
