The role of literary texts and images in society

The Master's programme in Literary Studies teaches you to look critically at literary expressions.

There are two specialisations within the Master’s programme in Literary Studies:

English Literature in a Visual Culture
The specialisation English Literature in a Visual Culture is taught entirely in English and focuses on the dynamics between literature and visual culture. This includes, for example, the role of illustrations in 19th century literature or how the choice of a particular cover affects the sale of a book. You will also study the graphic novel, which has long grown well beyond its limitation to superheroes and even deals with themes such as the Holocaust. The content of the courses is linked as much as possible to the scientific research of the lecturers. This helps you become familiar with current developments in the field. 

Nederlandse letterkunde en het literaire veld
The specialisation Nederlandse letterkunde en het literaire veld is taught in Dutch. This specialisation teaches you to independently study and analyse Dutch literary texts from the past and present. This includes the literary-historical context and all literary institutions that we call the literary field. In this way, you will deepen your knowledge of the role that literary texts have played and still play in our society—in the transfer of value, in cultural debate and in the formation of identity. 

The start date of this programme is September 1st.
