Every corner of the world has its poets, its novelists, its chroniclers. Comparative Literature at UNB attempts to understand the cultural and linguistic differences that separate them.
You’ll study literature across national borders, time periods, and languages and genres. You’ll read literatures in translation and discuss the implications of taking a literary text from one language to another. You’ll also learn how a broad understanding of world literature can help us grasp the unity of humankind through texts, while exploring the relationship between literature and other disciplines.
Comparative Literature at UNB is a multi-disciplinary field, which means you’ll learn from multiple fields of study and perspectives within the Arts faculty.
For more information, see the Comparative Literature Program.
