'The articles gathered in New Work in Comparative Literature in Europe are written by scholars working in Belgium, Denmark, Estonia, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Macedonia, Serbia, Slovenia, Spain, Poland, and the United Kingdom (and in one case a co-author who works in India) and represent a variety of concerns, approaches, styles, and scholarly traditions which co-exist within comparative literary studies in Europe at present. Many of them originate in the sessions "Comparative Literature in Europe: State of the Art" under the auspices of REELC/ENCLS: Réseau Européen d'Etudes Littéraires Comparées / European Network of Comparative Literary Studies and "Disintegration and Integration in Comparative Literature" under the auspices of the British Comparative Literature Association at the 20th Congress of the International Comparative Literature Association / Association Internationale de Littérature Comparée entitled "Comparative Literature as a Critical Approach."'
