Program description

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.
