Welcome to the home page of the Department of Comparative Literature and Folklore Studies at the University of Wisconsin, Madison.

Visit our pages on the faculty and their interests and areas of expertise, on the graduate and undergraduate programs and students, on samples of previous departmental course offerings and our current course listings and descriptions, and on our recommendations for interesting (and sometimes even exciting) links. Read a (brief) history of comparative literature. Visit the homepage of the Folklore Program for further news related to the study of Folklore at the UW.

If you're interested in either the graduate program or the undergraduate major you'll find everything we would usually provide to you in hard copy, plus some additional information available only here. And if you're already a student in the Graduate or Undergraduate Programs, there are useful and important (and sometimes even exciting) pages for you too.
