A number of Faculty members are active participants in the Oxford Comparative Criticism and Translaton Research programme. We run seminars, workshops, a postgraduate-led discussion group, an annual conference and stage public events and edit a book series.

Comparative Literature is changing. Its Eurocentric heritage has been challenged by various formulations of World Literature, while new media and new forms of artistic production are bringing urgency to comparative thinking across literature, film, the visual arts and music. The resulting questions of method are both intellectually compelling and central to the future of the humanities.
