Welcome back to Comparative Literature at King's

The Comparative Literature Programme was founded in 2002 and established as a Department in 2014. Over the years, we have grown into a broader and more varied department than we could have imagined. We have continued to develop our expertise in the languages and literatures of Europe and the ancient world: we offer teaching and research in Italian literature (for the first time at King's since the 19th century) and in literature and the visual arts. The Comparative Literature Department has also become truly global, with staff specialising in the literatures of South Asia, China, Africa, Australia, and the Middle East. Our growing community of alumni is an essential part of this success story, and a key part of our community.

Comparative Literature alumni group

Are you interested in establishing or taking part in a Comparative Literature alumni group? If so, please contact the King's Alumni Office by emailing

King's College London alumni association

The College's alumni association is in touch with more than 130,000 members of former staff and students of King's and the Colleges with which it has merged. Our alumni are our best ambassadors, and we are always interested to hear from former students who would like to offer advice or assistance to other alumni and students in a particular field of work.

Alumni are entitled to access a number of different benefits and services including InTouch magazine, corporate discounts, online journals and invitations to alumni events. To access these fantastic benefits contact the Alumni Office or sign up to Alumni Online. If you are interested in giving back to King’s you can do so through volunteering or making a gift to the College.

Stay in touch

Please let the King’s Alumni Office know if you have changed your contact details so that we can keep you up to date with the latest news from Comparative Literature and from King's.
