In high school you might have read the Odyssey in English class. The Odyssey wasn’t written in English, of course, but in high school all literature—even if it was written in Ancient Greek—belongs to the English department. At UGA, the English Department teaches English and American literature; the Classics Department teaches Greek and Latin literature; Romance Languages teaches French, Spanish, Italian and Portuguese literature. The Comparative Literature department is a little harder to pin down. We don’t limit ourselves to a single culture or language.  We teach world literature. We teach the literature of one language or culture in relation to literature from another.
