Omschrijving This course introduces students to selected theoretical approaches to literature. In the course we will focus on three traditions of literary and cultural analysis that have been dominant in literary scholarship throughout the last decades, namely the study of 1) form, 2) representation and 3) reception. In each week, students will be introduced to one, sometimes two theoretical approaches related to these fields of criticism and will become aware of their advantages and and possible limitations when applied to textual analysis. In the seminars, course participants learn how to use theoretical approaches and/or concepts as tools for critical literary and film analyses.
