Queen Mary University of London
This field, sometimes also understood as comparative cultural studies, has since its beginnings, recognised the realities of cultural movement and of exchange and dialogue. At its centre is the notion of 'world literature' along with attention to cultural, philosophical and theoretical questions. We also examine cosmopolitanism, transnationalism, exile, and other phenomena of our increasingly interconnected world.
A 1st Class or good Upper 2nd Class Honours degree in an area such as comparative literature, languages, English, philosophy, classics, and history; knowledge of 1 or more languages other than English is desirable, though presently not a pre-requisite; applications from graduates from other countries are welcome; where English is not the student's 1st language, the student needs to be highly proficient in English for academic purposes.
Core module: Cultures of comparison. Option modules: Anglo-German travel writing; constellations (online anthology project); exilic writing and the making of world literature; from the sublime to trauma (representing the unrepresentable); mapping 20th-century Latin; American fiction; in pursuit of prejudice? (mutual perceptions of identity); novels behaving badly; postcolonial studies today; thinking translation.
Modules will normally require a written essay of 4,000 words. The dissertation would be 10,000 words
