The Proseminar in Comparative Literature is organized around five questions. 1. Is there an epistemological object that might be the determination of comparative literature as a discipline? 2. Is the putative disciplinarity of comparative literature a methodological possibility? 3. Is the possibility of comparative literature given by the fact of a shared sensibility, or an affective being-in-common? 4. Is comparative literature's only question the question of its own possibility? 5. Is comparative literature perhaps a historical, social, political, practice?
