About the Course

The two 7.5-credit modules “English Literature and Literary Criticism” and “Literary Theory” are integrated for teaching purposes, though each is examined separately. The integrated course is an introduction to major theories in current literary scholarship. There are four major areas, with three theories represented in each: history, text, subjectivity, and culture in a broad sense. The theories are studied in relation to literary texts selected from various periods and genres.

"Important additional information for the 2020 autumn semester in connection to the corona pandemic: if teaching and examination cannot be conducted on campus, the course will be offered in an online format instead"
