Arts and Culture: Comparative Cultural Analysis


University of Amsterdam mapmarker icon Amsterdam Research university
Institution Logo University of Amsterdam

The Master's programme Comparative Cultural Analysis is dedicated to exploring how globalisation has increased across intercultural forms of literatures and arts. What a culture identifies as a dialogue with another culture is a sometimes fruitful and sometimes conflictual but always productive moment that reveals that no “culture” is a self-contained historical or geographical entity. Using interdisciplinary concepts and objects, the course proposes to explore the dialogues between and therefore (self-)redefinition of cultural phenomena, with a special emphasis on issues of mobility and identity construction.

The professors and researchers who form part of this programme all have very diverse research areas. Questions concerning the programme literature are combined with a broader perspective from various subjects such as cultural history, psychoanalysis and esthetics, philosophy and esthetics, anthropology and intercultural awareness, intermediality, and gender studies.
