This Master’s program has two specializations:
- Dutch literature and the literary field (please consult the Dutch study guide)
- English Literature in a Visual Culture
Master’s in Literary Studies, program English Literature in a Visual Culture
This Master’s program focuses on the relation between literature and visual culture. Rooted in the VU tradition of studying the relations between word and image, this specialized interdisciplinary program will teach the student to analyze the various ways in which textual and visual culture interact. The topics studied from this perspective range from the Renaissance stage to screenwriting, from the relation between poetry and photography to film adaptations of gothic novels. The courses in this program are closely linked to the current research of staff members, so that students are involved in cutting-edge developments. They are encouraged to explore their own interests in depth using the tools and theories they are provided with, culminating in their own research project when they write their MA-thesis in the second semester.
Is this your area of interest and you also want to get involved in research? Please consult the webpage on the Research Master in Humanities, specialization Literature and Contested Spaces.
