Whether you have studied for a BA, an MA, or a PhD, you have experienced the challenges and the rewards of working in Comparative Literature. As we all know, studying Comparative Literature means embarking on an intellectual journey across time and space, exploring literature and its links to the other arts in a wider, global perspective.
It is now nine years since the foundation of the Comparative Literature Programme at King's, and we look forward to our tenth anniversary in 2012, which we aim to celebrate with our alumnae and alumni.
These ten years will have seen Comparative Literature grow into a broader and more varied programme that we could have imagined back in 2002. We have continued to focus on the languages and literatures of Europe and the ancient world, adding Italian literature (for the first time since the 19th centyury at King's!) and the study of literature and the visual arts. We now offer courses in the literatures of East Asia, India, and Africa, and in 2011-12 we expect to recruit two new teachers in World Literature.
Our growing community of Alumni is an essential part of this success story,and we would like you to be able to make the most of the wealth
and diversity of experiences that the Programme represents.
To do so, I would like to invite you to join the new King's
Comparative Literature Alumni group of Facebook.
This will be the principal means of communication among alumni, the
CompLit community, and others interested in King's Comparative Literature Programme, until we are able to open a dedicated website. Join the group to find old and new friends, read about future events, network, or just chat!
