"Since de Sade and the death of God, the universe of language has absorbed our sexuality, denatured it, placed it in a void where it establishes its sovereignty and where it incessantly sets up as the Law the limits it transgresses" (Foucault, Language, Counter-Memory, Practice: Selected Essays and Interviews. 1977, p. 50).

Coordinates of Comparison: Text, Readers, & Theories
Comparative Literature Conference
29–31 August 2007
University of Alberta
Edmonton, AB

CALL FOR PAPERS

Comparative Literature has traditionally been centred on the
comparison of texts from diverse languages and cultures. Texts,
however, are merely one coordinate where comparisons converge; more
recent scholarship has taken comparative analysis to other regions of
investigation, including readers themselves and the theories that
underpin literary research. Exploring the territories that map the
comparative field is the concern of this conference; we solicit papers
from any field concerned with the study of literature.
