What exactly makes a text literature? What role does literature play in society, past and present? During the Literature programme, you will study and compare literature from antiquity to modern times, also in relation to other arts and media. From epic to novel and from novella to fan fiction. By comparing texts from different periods and languages, you will learn to uncover principles that transcend language. The programme also provides you with the tools to conduct thorough research so that you can take well-founded standpoints. Literature studies is an ongoing debate.
