Comparative Literature

Department Undergraduate Group

The DUG hopes to bring concentrators in closer contact with faculty, one another, and the broader field of literary studies to better our understanding of Comparative Literature both inside and outside of Brown. 

Come here to find out what the DUG is planning, how to become more involved, and where you can find some good Comp Lit-related web links.
