About

The major programs at Institute for Comparative Literature and Society (ICLS) from at Columbia University allow qualified students to study literature, culture, and society with reference to material from several national traditions, or in combination of literary study with comparative study in other disciplines in the humanities and social sciences.

Overview

The Comparative Literature and Society program at Columbia University is designed for students whose interest and expertise in languages other than English permit them to work comparatively in several national or regional cultures. 

Key Features 

  • The course of study differs from that of traditional comparative literature programs, both in its cross-disciplinary nature and in its expanded geographic range, including not just European, but also Asian, Middle Eastern, African, and Latin American cultures.
  • The program includes course work in the social sciences, and several core courses are jointly taught by faculty from different disciplines. Students thus explore a variety of methodological and disciplinary approaches to cultural and literary artifacts in the broadest sense. 

Programme Structure

Courses include: 

  • Hegel: State, History, Freedom
  • Post-Freud
  • Multilingual Technologies and Language Diversity
  • Abolition Medicine: Medical Racisms and Anti-Racisms
  • Walter Benjamin
  • Jacques Lacan: An introduction to his work
