Course content

The master Art, Literature and Society addresses contemporary debates in literature, art, religion, philosophy and culture. The key term here is interdisciplinarity: you learn to approach debates not as a philosopher, student of literature, sociologist or art historian, but rather as a student of culture who can combine different approaches from all of these various disciplines.

You will use interdisciplinary insights to debate issues such as:

- The critique of nationalism in recent German literature
- The humanities in academia
- Architecture and politics
- Fascism and modernism
- Darwinian aesthetics
- Are we our brain?
- The role of art in the future of democracy

The debates and discussions you will have during the programme, as well as the lectures and skills trainings, will help you:

- Develop broad insights into current issues in art and literature that are of national and international importance
- Gain experience engaging in impassioned debates and tackling a range of contemporary controversies
- Learn to infuse your academic practice with an element of personality, just as an artist would with a painting
