“Comparative Literature contributes to a sense of being at home in a world that is heterogeneous and fractured, rather than affirming a monolithic canon marked by territory and homogeneity.” This is what our editors wrote in the introduction of the 200th jubilee volume Taking Stock – Twenty-Five Years of Comparative Literary Research (2019). The past volumes in this series provide a look into the history of Comparative Literary Studies of the last three decades. Having started with ‘classical’ literary studies, the series opened to contemporary approaches such as migration studies, memory studies, and human-animal studies. Thus, it is ready for its future.
