Comparative Literature 2A analyses the theme of ‘crossing borders’ in geographical, scientific, political, psychological, social, cultural, bodily, and gender-orientated terms. It focuses on human motivations behind and the consequences of various ‘crossings’ as well as the exploration of otherness, secrets, mysteries and taboos. It additionally deals with literary depictions of exile, emigration, travels, love and broadly understood ‘discoveries’.
