Course Info
This course aims to examine the basic questions and discussions around the term “Comparative Literature.” How did Comparative Literature emerge as a study field? Can it be called a discipline? Which meanings did it attain over the years? How can one define national and transnational literature? What is the role of translation in Comparative Literature? After going over some of the answers given to these questions, we will perform comparative analyses of the literary pieces that belong to different traditions. Locating the notions of comparison and influence in a transnational context, the course also aims to discuss how Comparative Literature responds to the problems of the modern world.
