· 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?

As a comparative literature roundtable, we want to be as inconclusive as possible, looking at English and non-English authors, curricula, and approaches. The language of instruction in this roundtable but the chair will co-ordinate hands-outs and translations.
