This roundtable will exchange perceptions and experiences on the state of comparative literature both in the US and worldwide today. Our session will explore the following questions:

· What are the concrete experiences of “comparistes” in their teaching and research today?
· How can teachers of comparative literature promote their area of interest in academia and the community?
· What contributions can teachers and researchers in comparative literature make to creative curriculum develop today?
This roundtable explores three questions concerning the teaching of disability literature: Is there an ideal curriculum or canon of readings concerned disabled people?
