Conversations about Comparative Literature
Come to discuss literature and comparative literary studies in a relaxed and informative class, over lunch. You will meet comparative literature faculty and graduate students who will share their work, their experiences, and interests in literature. Discussions will range from the challenges and excitement of studying medieval Chinese poetry to blogging about the humanities; the relation of different cultures¿ notions of aesthetics and the role literature plays, and much more. Topics will also be generated by class participants. No pre-requisites.
