A LABORATORY OF IDEAS, REFLECTION, AND NARRATIVES IN THE DIGITAL AGE
Do you wonder how a literary work becomes a classic or bestseller in the Digital Age? Would you like to learn about the steps taken between publishing a manuscript and the media reviews, talk shows, or blogs in which the work is discussed? Then this Master's programme might be for you.
In the Master’s programme Literature Today, you will:
- Learn to identify and critically evaluate the most recent national and international developments in literature, and to situate these from a historical perspective.
- Be equipped with the tools to identify and explain the quality of literary works in times of increasing commercialisation.
- Learn how literature circulates within the market as part of a creative industry sustained by centuries-old tradition.
- Investigate from theoretical and practical angles how to help to spread literature, explain it to a broader public, and translate academic insights for the reading public.
