Comparative Literature

Visit Department Website

Comparative literary study crosses the borders of individual national canons to explore works from different languages, cultures, and periods.

This may involve analyses of the relationships between literature and other artistic media, studies of genre, or reflections on different kinds of reading and interpretation. It may also take the form of interdisciplinary research grounded in connections between literary studies and other disciplines in the humanities or the social sciences.
