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
