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.
