Overview

Overview

Comparative Literature offered by the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign is an interdisciplinary field whose practitioners study literature and culture across national borders, across time periods, across languages, across genres, across boundaries between literature and the other arts (fine and applied arts, music, painting, dance, film, etc.), and across disciplines (philosophy, science, medicine, law, history, architecture, sociology, politics, and the like). Study Abroad and work in several languages and cultures and across disciplines is strongly encouraged.
