As Sarah Lawall stated in her essay, the world-literature perspective is not one, but multiple. By looking at literature comparatively, we can enrich our understanding of the historical and cultural context of the literary works, to look over the horizon of our own tradition and to see how cultures interact.
The conference will consider the theory and the practice of comparative literature and will discuss the transformations and travels of literary genres and texts across time and space. It will explore the connections of literature with history, philosophy, politics, and literary theory, and study the intersections of literature with other cultural forms such as film, visual arts, music and media.
Topics may include, but are not limited to:
History of literature
Multilingualism in literature
Translations, adaptations, screenings
Literature and politics
Literature and philosophy
Literature and psychoanalysis
Literature and music
Literature and art
Literature and sciences
Literature and gender
Intertextuality and hypertextuality
