How might interpretive juxtapositions between such divergent modes as fiction and nonfiction, literary and nonliterary, and verbal and visual articulate some of the current ambivalence about method in the discipline of literary studies? Papers welcome on all aspects of comparative thinking by period, genre, or media in relation to 20th/21st century literature. Abstracts and short vitae to Cornelius Collins, Rutgers University (corneliuscollins (at) rocketmail.com).
