Culture and Literature

Profile within the Bachelor’s degree programme in European Languages and Cultures

In the first semester, the module Reading Modern Europe takes you on a journey of discovery along some of Europe's literary and cultural landmarks. Departing from what you have learned in the introduction Studying Europe, you will explore specific key ideas, genres, styles and questions that have shaped and are shaping the European cultural landscape. Reading Modern Europe will broaden as well as deepen your sense for the power of culture, literature and reading. 

From the second semester onwards, you will follow a variety of themed course units within the profile. These include, amongst others:

  • Applied Sociology of Literature: A course in which you learn how fictions shape worldviews and societies
  • Reading, Watching, Looking: A course in which you analyze what happens when we read a book or watch a film
  • Imagining Europe's Tomorrow: An experimental course in which you study utopian and dystopian visions of Europe's future - and come up with your own
  • ... and many more!

Throughout this profile, you are trained in conducting research, developing critical questions, presenting your work, and providing creative solutions for societal and cultural problems at local, national and transnational levels.
