Comparative World Literature is the study of foreign literatures in translation and the relationships among those literatures and between literature and other fields such as art, music, history, philosophy, and theatre. At CSULB, Comparative World Literature also offers a strong focus in cultural studies and mythology as bases for understanding literature and for the ways we see ourselves in a multicultural environment. Suggested preparation: course work in world literature, history, English composition, and foreign language.
