Course Number:

Comparative Literature is an exacting discipline that studies literature across boundaries of culture, geography, and language. This course will focus on textual analysis and critical reflection on the important acts of reading and writing, in relation to other disciplines and cultural media like history, politics, film, journalism, and art. Theoretical approaches to interpretation will be stressed. Texts will be in English, although when possible, students will be encouraged to read works and view films in the original. For students with high intermediate or better language skills, a short translation project is possible as a final project.
