NYU Graduate Student Conference

Call for Papers

The common ground of literary and area studies lies in our joint focus on
questions of comparison. At the root of our academic activity is the
characterization of similarity and difference, be it cultural, political,
linguistic or aesthetic. Issues of comparability are visible in shared
anxieties regarding the origins and directions of our disciplines. In our
overlapping pursuit of self-definition we depend on each other for
collaboration and provocation.
