Department of English & Comparative Literature

Our partnership with the Department of English provides an interdisciplinary home for students to engage in the study of various English literature traditions. The study of English literature in a comparative “way” requires students to analyze literature that’s been circulating across more than 1000 years of history and nearly all the continents of the globe. It means learning a whole new way of critical thinking about the work that literature does in the world, since it is clear that writing doesn’t merely reflect the worlds it comes from, but also helps to shape those worlds.
