The Oscar Wilde Society of America is an academic and literary society founded in 2002 to promote the study, understanding, and dissemination of research about Oscar Wilde and his times from the American perspective.

We  are especially engaged in fostering a wider awareness of Oscar Wilde's 1882 American lecture tour, a greater appreciation of his views on the redemptive value of beauty in our daily lives, and knowledge of the artists, educators, celebrated people, and others he met on his tour across the continent.

We welcome all who share our interest to support, make contributions, and join in this celebration.
