Program Description:

The Graduate Program in Comparative Literature at Rutgers offers an opportunity for talented, original, and dedicated students to work with and think through a variety of questions related to texts. Transcending national and linguistic boundaries, and drawing on a richly diverse faculty, the program aims at helping students construct and analyze the field of textual relations that underlies literary concepts such as genre, theory, movement, and canon. Areas of particular importance, in this respect, are literary theory,the social history of literary and cultural production, comparative East-West poetics, and the relationship of literature with other fields.
