Indiana University Bloomington

Founded in 1949, Indiana University's Department of Comparative Literature is one of the oldest and most comprehensive in the United States. We have pioneered developments that have helped to move the discipline beyond its origins in European literary and intellectual traditions, and, with the cooperation of colleagues in other departments and programs, we now stand at the crossroads of the humanities, providing our students with a rich and illuminating range of approaches to literary study.
