Welcome to Comparative Literature at the University of Pennsylvania

Graduate Chair: Kevin Platt

The Program in Comparative Literature & Literary Theory at Penn is a dynamic and congenial intellectual community that brings members together through common, core interests. We offer undergraduate and graduate programs for the study of literature through various disciplinary and critical perspectives, and the study of cultural history through the production of representations. The Program enables students to engage rigorously with critical theory as both a reflection on interpretive method and a tool of critique.
