In this report, Paul de Man reviews the Comparative Literature Program at Rutgers University. The report is based on extensive interviews with most of the faculty members involved in the Comparative Literature Program at Rutgers, as well as with numerous graduate and undergraduate students. The document prepared by the internal faculty and entitled ‘A Report on the History and Activities of the New Brunswick Discipline’ has proven to be very informative in the preparation of this report. It describes the history and the objectives of the department in clear and objective terms and tells how the faculty tried to meet the recommendations of the earlier Greene report (1975). The report contains general considerations and recommendations related to both the undergraduate and graduate programs and faculty.
