Ethics before Comparison

Ethics before Comparison Palumbo-Liu explores the relation of literature and ethics, noting that literature is always about “something else.” Drawing from a number of specific cases, including the Rohingya refugee crisis, he connects material histories with cultural practices that defy simple thematization. With reference to Anton Shammas, Bessie Head, and John Berger, he reflects critically on the practice of comparison as embedded in the ethics of knowledge production. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Comparative Literature Duke University Press

Abstract

Palumbo-Liu explores the relation of literature and ethics, noting that literature is always about “something else.” Drawing from a number of specific cases, including the Rohingya refugee crisis, he connects material histories with cultural practices that defy simple thematization. With reference to Anton Shammas, Bessie Head, and John Berger, he reflects critically on the practice of comparison as embedded in the ethics of knowledge production.
