The Chair of English Literature and Cultural Studies maintains close contact with India. Within the DAAD program A New Passage to India and still under the aegis of Prof. Isabel Karremann the joint project "Literature in a Globalized World: Creative and Critical Perspectives" was created in cooperation with the Jawaharlal Nehru University Delhi, India. The German-Indian project is financed within the DAAD framework Indo-German Partnerships in Higher Education.
Project leaders: Prof. Saugata Bhaduri (JNU, Delhi), Prof. Zeno Ackermann (JMU, Würzburg)
Under the heading „Literature in a Globalized World: Creative and Critical Perspectives” the chair of English Literature and Cultural Studies collaborates with Jawaharlal Nehru University Delhi, India.
This programme allows students who are enrolled in the MA ‘English Speaking Cultures’ at Würzburg University to build a profile in literature and globalization studies, a new and expanding field that engages with the role of ways literary texts provide creative and critical perspectives on processes of globalization. Students also acquire knowledge of key theoretical texts that provide a methodology for studying literature in transnational contexts.
If you are interested in literature in a globalized world and are also interested in India, the DAAD project "Literature in a Globalized World: Creative and Critical Perspectives" by the Chair of English Literature and Cultural Studies and the renowned Jawaharlal Nehru University Delhi offers you a wide range of possibilities.
The cooperation is made possible through the funding initiative Indo-German Partnerships in Higher Education of the Indian University Grants Commission (UGC) and the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD). This project is financially supported by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) with funds from the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).
