Comparative Literature

Course Description

This is a new MA programme building on the thriving undergraduate programme in Comparative Literature. This field, sometimes also understood as comparative cultural studies, has since its beginnings recognised the realities of cultural movement, of exchange and dialogue. At its centre is the notion of �world literature� along with attention to cultural, philosophical and theoretical questions. Research skills and training are an integral part of the MA. You will enjoy some flexibility in your choice of modules, while at the same time benefiting from the guidance of your tutor to ensure coherence in your studies. Whichever topics you study, you will have the opportunity to develop your academic writing skills.

Programme outline
The curriculum consists of a core module, Cultures of Comparison Theory of Practice, which deals with the history and nature of Comparative Literature as a discipline and which examines interdisciplinary, cross-national approaches to literature and critical theory.

You will also choose two optional modules such as:

Key Concepts in Twentieth-Century Literary Criticism
Novels Behaving Badly
Thinking Translation
Orientalism in European Literature
Romantic Manifestos
History, Fiction, Memory in French Cinema
Reading Images: Painting, Photography, Film
European Jewish Literature
In Pursuit of Prejudice? Mutual Perceptions of Identity
