Spotlight on a course: Key Debates in Literary and Cultural Studies.

Why do we approach research topics the way we do? This core course provides you with fundamental insights into a series of key concepts, debates and methodologies and assesses how they shape the field of Literary Studies. Through specific case studies, we explore how concepts like metaphoricity or genre can be deployed. We aim to research how texts, concepts and methods inform each other and how literary concepts and approaches can be applied productively and critically.
