Thinking about Comparative Literature today: shifting objects, changing methods

Main Article Content

Anne Duprat


My paper will focus on the evolution of the relations between theory and philosophy in theoretical thinking about comparative literature. What does a contemporary theory of literature purport to do, and how does it construct its objects in a rapidly evolving field of practices, where the relation between global and local, mainstreams and margins has evolved as well? Resting on a few instances of recent critical reassessments of theoretical issues about comparative literature, I will endeavor to outline the consequences this evolution has on the way theoretical thinking about literature can account for itself today.
