Cursusdoelen
Students will become familiar with a number of key theoretical issues pertaining to current debates in literary studies, postcolonial literature and transcultural aesthetics. They will expand their knowledge in literary analysis as well as gain insight into methodological and cross-disciplinary questions. 
Inhoud
This course studies literature as a transnational phenomenon that crosses and helps re-define and shift cultural borders. Students gain theoretical, historical, and methodological insights with respect to the study of the role of literature, both as it is written and read, as a mediator between cultures. The areas covered include exchanges within the international fields of European, American, African and Asian cultures and literature. Among issues to be addressed are the concepts and methodolocial challenges of comparison, recent debates around new comparativism; processes of cultural transfer and translation; transnational and transcultural poetics; as well as postcolonial perspectives. Students will be expected to engage actively in the discussions on all these issues and then specialize in one while preparing the final assignment.
