Komplitt: Forum for Comparative Literature is a research group based at the Centre for Languages and Literature (SOL) of Lund University. It was founded in 2013 with the aim to foster close collaboration among scholars across the 17 language sections at the Centre and promote interdisciplinary approaches to literary studies. Komplitt has established itself as the first and unique research group of its kind in Sweden, which is committed to bringing Scandinavian perspectives to the global development of Comparative Literature as a discipline. We organise research seminars, symposiums, conference panels and round-table discussions with invited guest speakers. We welcome all forms of collaborations and organisational partnerships.
For a research statement of our group, see "Towards a Swedish Model of Comparative Literature" on "Resarch Blog" page.
Three of our committee members, Annika Mörte Alling, Christian Claesson, and Paul Tenngart, are also part of a much larger, nationwide research programme based at Stockholm University, World Literatures: Cosmopolitan and Vernacular Dynamics (2016-2021), supported by the Swedish Foundation for Humanities and Social Sciences.
