Comparative Literature

This class will be taught in alternate years, opposite Research in the Sciences and Humanities

Comparative Literature is an English class, but it's so much more! This course has two main objectives: to explore the differences that arise in texts from different cultures and times, and to recognize the universal issues and concerns that appear not only in the works we read, but also in your own lives and experiences. Although the course is open to all students, it is meant to be a challenging alternative to English 9 or 10. It involves a large quantity of reading; frequent discussions, debates and presentations; and many diverse writing assignments.
