The comparative approach acknowledges the co-existence of diverse entities in our world and takes for its province the understanding of multiple relations between these entities, and the cultures of which they are constituents. Comparative practice demands that difference be respected paving the way for mutuality and understanding. This approach is particularly fruitful in the study of the arts and their nesting cultures in the Asian subcontinent.

"Cultural Divides: Bridging Gaps and Making Connections"
1st Virtual Conference
The Graveyard in Literature: Liminality and Social Critique will be published by Cambridge Scholars in late 2021. We are currently seeking a few final essays to complete the collection.
The theme for the Collection:
“Only the media techniques of the 19th century, that is, photography, gramophone and film, had saved the sensuous reality from the absolutism of the book – however, one could formulate more radically: before the absolutism of language”, – N. Bolz writes in the book "Das ABC der Medien". The proposed opposition between writing as an "informational" media (which was most interesting to McLuhan) and "sensory" media needs critical reflection. This is especially important in conditions when a person's immersion in the media space implies that not only the information brain memory should be involved, but also various performative practices of experience and memory of the body.
Purdue University Literature, Interdisciplinary, Theory and Culture Organization Graduate Student Symposium, March 19-20, 2021
Crossing Boundaries in Literature, Theory, and Culture
Myth and the environment have shared a rich common cultural history travelling as far back as the old times of storytelling and legend (Love 2003; O’Brian and White 2017, Schama 1996). From native American oral narrative where animals, humans and other beings interact, to Genesis in the Bible or the Darwinian theory of evolution, we can trace a rich array of elements which qualify as myth in different cultures. All of them, almost constantly have effects on the environment. From animals to “supernatural events,” the liminality of myth exhibits transition and transformation.

Working Title of the Volume: Wings, Wonders, and Warriors: Dragons in Children’s Literature and Graphic Novels
As the popularity of mythical creatures in films and literature grows, there is one creature that remains prominent: the dragon. Dragons have become most visible recently in the cinematic versions of The Hobbit and in George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire (Game of Thrones Series). However, there are other films, such as Dragonslayer (1981), Reign of Fire (2002), Dragonheart (1996), and the How to Train Your Dragon series (2010-2019), and numerous adult and children’s literature series that feature dragons.
