Literary scholars: teachers, advisors and creative thinkers
The research group Literature is specialised in the writing and reception of literature, in the past and present, both in Europe and outside of it. We are interested in why certain works are prized while others are popular; in new trends and older traditions; in the interactions between literature and other media; in the future of the book.
Many of our researchers are involved in commissioned research projects concerning literary heritage and the relationship between cultural memory and identities. They are able to advise on the cultural representations of societal developments such as migration, nationalism, and climate change. Furthermore, our researchers have often contributed to exhibitions and the creation of cultural artefacts such as books, games or apps.
