Faculty and graduate students in Comparative Literature are known for their active involvement in organizing campus events, conferences, and lecture series, as well as for founding or playing a major role in a variety of prominent organizations and projects.

Professor Gentzler established and continues to administer the Translation Center; Professor Portuges is the founder and curator of the Massachusetts Multicultural Film Festival; for years, Professor Lenson has been the editor of the Massachusetts Review, and the host of the MR2 Radio Program; in close collaboration with his Belgian colleagues, Professor Moebius coordinates the Word/Image exchange program, that has resulted in already four international conferences. Professor Moebius also launched the Poets and Poetry of New England project—initially an innovative poetry course, the project has now become part of a new DVD series.

OGSCL, the Organization of Graduate Students in Comparative Literature, often organizes lecture series, conferences, and other events that attract a wide audience.
