Spotlight on a course: Politics of the Contemporary

You will study literature, the arts, and theory in relation to a specific issue that enjoys a particular relevance, urgency, or actuality for the present. You will look at it from a perspective that is political in its broadest sense, i.e. as having to do with power. Is it possible to reflect on arrangements of power in the very present that envelops and constitutes us, and if so, how? Or is the present always precisely what escapes us? Is it possible for theory, literature, and the arts to reflect on and even intervene in whatever is happening right now?

Our Masters' strength is that we do not simply study literature, but look from the literary outwards. Literary texts constitute socio-cultural and political questions that intervene in other modes of thinking Daan Wesselman
