The focus of our programme is on the interactions between literature and society, and literature and visual culture. You will read canonical British works, and also explore contemporary novels from different English-speaking countries. In our courses, you will analyze these texts from two cutting-edge perspectives: English literature in a changing world, and English literature in a visual culture.
In the university minor Migration Studies, we pay special attention to interactions between migrants, nation-states and borders, and supranational institutions and organizations. In this interdisciplinary minor, you will deepen your understanding of these issues by following courses in law, history and social sciences.
