Spotlight on a course: Critical Approaches to Literature and Culture
In this core course all students will present their own areas of specialisation, i.e. their own research strategies, theoretical approaches and current work in progress. The emphasis of the course is on methodology. Hence the central aim of this course is to enable you to conduct the independent research required for writing a Master's thesis. You will complete set writing assignments, give a conference presentation, and take the first steps towards the completion of your thesis project.
Meet & Ask
Talk to a student, a teacher and/or a study advisor live, via Zoom. You will receive a short presentation of the programme and you will be able to ask all of your questions live, together with other prospective students. The next Meet & Ask of English Literature and Culture will be on 9 February 2021, 17:30-18:15 CET.

'Literature is a way of living many lives rather than just one, allowing us to inhabit other people’s cultures and perspectives. It can be of great help when navigating the pluralities of our inter-connected world.'
