ICLS6901 - Literary Comparison: History and Methods
Semester 1, 2012 | Credit Points: 6
Coordinator: Bronwyn Winter
Phone: +61 2 9351 5643
The unit traces the history of comparative literature as it first evolved in Europe (Goethe's idea of Weltliteratur, the 'French School') then elsewhere (the 'American School' in particular). Through various case studies, it will trace methodological debates such as the relationship of comparative literature to national literatures, new perspectives from post-Colonial, feminist and gay/lesbian/queer studies and an introduction of new dimensions of comparatism that relate literature to film, performance and art studies.
