“Over the Horizon: Comparative Perspective on Literature”

International Online Conference

3-5 April 2019 – London, UK

organised by London Centre for Interdisciplinary Research

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. It will explore the connections of literature with history, philosophy, politics, and literary theory, and study the intersections of literature with other cultural forms such as film, visual arts, music and media.

Topics may include, but are not limited to:

World literatures

Postcolonial literature

History of literature

Multilingualism in literature

Translations, adaptations, screenings

Literature and politics

Literature and philosophy

Literature and music
