Abstract

FORUM RESPONSES TO COMPARATIVE LITERATURE IN AN AGE OF GLOBALIZATION A BRIEF NOTE Jonathan Hart University of Alberta Saussy, Haun, ed. Comparative Literature in an Age of Globalization. Baltimore, MD: Johns Hopkins UP, 2006. ISBN 0-8018-8360-6 Having written on this collection when it was in draft form on the internet, I decided to have a forum about the finished collection of this report of the American Comparative Literature Association and to invite eminent scholars in the field to respond the book in a way and length of their choosing given the necessary deadline for a response to a recent publication. I was fortunate that three distinguished scholars—Jean Bessiere (Nouvelle Sorbonne-Paris III), Roland Le Huenen (Toronto) and Ann Rigney (Utrecht)—agreed to this request. Here, I express my thanks to them once more. It was also important to respond in English and French, not simply because they are the official languages of Canada and the International Comparative Literature Association, but because in the age of globalization, so much is published in English that it is key to have other perspectives. It was also desirable for the sake of diversity to seek points of view that also come from outside the United States.
