I’m delighted to have a chapter in Giulia Gasperi’s and Joseph Pivato’s new book, Comparative Literature For The New Century, which has just been published by McGill-Queens University Press.
It’s a delight, too, have written that chapter as a Festschrift piece* honouring Pivato’s discipline-building career.
And—in the process—it’s both a delight and a privilege to be able to bring to this writing a payment of tribute—by way of opening epigraphs—to other important mentors in that critical institution called the #university:
* What’s a Festschrift? A peculiarly academical genre.
