Spanning topics such as Haiku and nature in Japan, youth and revolution in 20th century Chinese culture, and the art and architecture of the graphic novel, courses in Global Literatures enable students to pursue their interests in literature beyond linguistic, cultural or departmental boundaries. Classes and readings are in English, but students are also encouraged to read in the original language when possible.

World literature courses are taught by the members of the following departments: Asian and Middle Eastern Studies, French and Francophone Studies, German Studies, and Hispanic Studies. The material may be drawn from various literature such as Chinese, French, German, Japanese, and Spanish.
