NEW! Literature in a Globalized World: Creative and Critical Perspectives14.11.2016
Thematic focus within the MA ‘English Speaking Cultures’ starting in the winter term 2016/17 A joint teaching and research project between Würzburg University and Jawaharlal-Nehru University Delhi, India, within the DAAD-framework Indo-German Partnerships in Higher Education. Project leaders: Prof. Dr. Isabel Karremann and Prof. Dr. Saugata Bhaduri
This programme funded by the DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service) will allow 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 will also acquire knowledge of key theoretical texts that provide a methodology for studying literature in transnational contexts.
The measures in this programme include seminars, workshops, lectures as well as a Winter School and a Summer School taught jointly by lecturers of Würzburg University, JNU Delhi and other international guest professors. The teaching activities will be acknowledged as part of the regular MA ‘English Speaking Cultures’, allowing participating students to collect credit points toward their degrees. Advanced BA- and Lehramt-students may sign up for seminars and other measures depending on availability of places.
Presentation of the project and information for interested students: 9. November 2016, 18:00 Uhr, Übungsraum 16 (Philosophiegebäude)
