Comparative Literature is a capacious field, open to a variety of research foci across linguistic, national, cultural, and disciplinary boundaries.
We compare literatures from a wide array of languages and historical periods, and in so doing constantly rethink the critical theories and comparative practices in which we are engaged.
Our areas of research include:
- Literatures in English, Russian, French, and German
- Multilingual texts and practices
- Migrations and diasporas
- Transcultural literatures
- Literature and other fields of discourse
- Literary theory
