Fiche détaillée de "Comparative literature around the world: global practice"

Comparative Literature Around the World: Global Practice is a collection of essays that describes what comparatists do, globally, rather than prescribes what comparatists should be. This volume of descriptive essays is important for understanding how Comparative Literature has been practiced around the world. Three essays discuss Comparative Literature in European countries (France, Germany and Sweden) while twelve essays examine countries from five other continents (Turkey, Persian/Arabian Gulf, Iran, Georgia/Russia, India, China, Japan, U.S., Canada, Brazil, Morocco, and New Zealand).
