What is joy? What do literature, art, and philosophy say about it? It is around the crucial concept/emotion of “JOY” that we wish to create a dialogue in the 24th annual conference of the Centre for Comparative Literature at the University of Toronto, held from February 27 to March 1st 2014.

Qu’est-ce que la joie? Que peuvent nous en dire la littérature, l’art et la philosophie? C’est autour du concept/émotion de la joie que nous souhaitons créer un dialogue lors du 24ème colloque du Centre de littérature comparée de l’Université de Toronto, qui aura lieu du 27 février au 1er mars 2014.
