Course Description

The course introduces students to a historical survey of comparative literature as a discipline, examining the Eurocentric foundations it was based on. Through a study of various comparative approaches and a close reading of comparative texts, students are made aware of issues of identity, cultural/textual diversity, and cross-cultural and cross-linguistic influences. Actual texts studies depend upon the instructor’s choice.
