Discover the complex role of the Other in European literature. This program invites you to join discussions on contemporary issues of identity, marginalization, and the idea of the foreigner.

Program Highlights

  • Meet with contemporary European authors and scholars, and build the analytical framework to articulate your own critical voice
  • Develop skills necessary to analyze and deconstruct literature, and consider the historic and social contexts in which texts are written
  • Travel with your classmates and DIS faculty on course-integrated Study Tours to explore British literature from a postcolonial perspective

Is This Program For You?

It’s a good fit if you study:

  • Creative Writing
  • Literature
  • English

Globalization, migrant politics, gender identity, and cultural diversity all raise key questions and are essential to the discussion of our future societies. It is important to debate these questions, and to trace their roots through literary and critical studies.”
