Panelists examine the writing of literary history that involves more than one language and (hence) cultural base. Examples of comparative literary history include world literary history; regional (e.g., of Europe) or imperial literary histories; and histories of nations with literary traditions in a variety of languages (e.g., India, Canada, Switzerland, United States).
