The Emory Comparative Literature Department offers students a comprehensive curriculum in literary disciplines across national traditions and in the theoretical and critical exploration of literature and language. The emphasis of the Department reflects the primary goals of Comparative Literature itself: the comparison of literatures in different languages across national boundaries, and the engagement in theoretical explorations across disciplinary boundaries such as psychoanalysis and philosophy. We also recognize the crucial significance of engaging “languages” more broadly defined, including those languages or symbolic systems that are central to developments in the sciences and in technology.
