Literature in a globalized world

In this Research Master's programme, you study the role of literature in modern societies and its continuing role in the changing media landscapes of the modern world.

The two-year Research Master's programme in Comparative Literary Studies focuses on the role that literature in European languages plays as a cultural medium in the modern world. You will study literary phenomena from the Renaissance onward, evaluating it against the intellectual, social, political, and technological changes that occurred in society during these different eras.

The ‘comparative’ approach characteristic for Utrecht is understood to involve comparison between literary phenomena along three principal axes:
-transculturality (how does literature reflect and negotiate cultural differences and operate across national borders?)
-mediality (how does literature work as a medium and relate to other forms of cultural and knowledge production? how are literary phenomena adapted to other media? )
-memory (how do stories and cultural forms survive across generations and how are they transformed across time?)
