Centre for Comparative Literature
Continuing U of T's great tradition of literary theory and criticism established by renowned scholar Northrop Frye, the Centre for Comparative Literature offers the brightest young minds from around the world an extraordinary opportunity to learn from leading humanities scholars across every major field, era and language. Understanding literatures and their place within cultures and histories means initiating dialogues between disparate literatures as well as between literature and other cultural forms. To properly appreciate phenomena like the nation-state, modern subjectivity, cultural exchange or the capitalist crisis, for example, requires working across languages, nations and cultures and stimulating discussion and debate that test ideas and theories at the intersection of disciplines.
