The Comparative Literary Studies Program reflects the belief that literary texts can best be understood within the context of diverse literary traditions and other cultural phenomena. The program is able to accomplish this by drawing on faculty from the various literature departments as well as from other disciplines (such as art history, film studies, music, and philosophy).
