The Rutgers University Program in Comparative Literature is pleased to announce a one-day conference on the theme “Comparative Literature/Comparative Media.”  The conference will feature talks by six internationally-acclaimed scholars who work across the disciplinary boundaries separating literary from media studies.  Comparative literature and its relation to film, graphic narrative, media history, music, and new media art will be among the topics to be explored.  Speakers include Hillary Chute (Chicago), Lisa Gitelman (NYU), Andrew Johnston (Amherst), Lutz Koepnick (Washington University in St. Louis), Timothy Murray (Cornell), and Frances Negrón-Muntaner (Columbia).  Members of the Rutgers Comparative Literature faculty will be discussants.
