Transitions in Comparative Studies (University College Cork, Ireland 28-30 June 2011)

updated: 
Thursday, November 24, 2011 - 12:54pm
Comparative Literature Association of Ireland/UCC

The comparative gesture performs both the act and the question of transition between the terms compared. Understood as an intercultural practice, comparative literature may thus also be understood as both a transitive and transnational process – creating its own object/form of knowledge as it identifies and analyses lines of relation and exchange between literary cultures. When navigating between languages, it becomes critically engaged with the possibility and methods of such navigation. Meanwhile, interdisciplinary and inter-medial versions of comparative studies likewise centre about transitions which may themselves remain under-analysed.

The Institution of Literature: 250 Years of English Studies and Cultural Transfer (30 August - 1 September 2012)

updated: 
Wednesday, November 23, 2011 - 5:50pm
Department of British Literature and Culture / Department of English Didactics, Goettingen University

2012 marks the 250th anniversary of the election of John Tompson as the first Professor of English at Goettingen University. His English Miscellanies was one of the first English publications ever in Germany, and was also the first anthology composed in an academic context for the purpose of the mediation of English literature and culture to German students of English. The Miscellanies was therefore an important watershed in the development of British-German literary and cultural transfer.
