Comparative Literature MA Queen Mary University of London

This MA programme builds on our thriving undergraduate programme in Comparative Literature. This field, sometimes also understood as comparative cultural studies, has since its beginnings, recognised the realities of cultural movement and of exchange and dialogue. At its centre is the notion of 'world literature' along with attention to cultural, philosophical and theoretical questions. We also examine cosmopolitanism, transnationalism, exile, and other phenomena of our increasingly interconnected world.

At its centre is the notion of 'world literature' along with attention to cultural, philosophical and theoretical questions. We also examine cosmopolitanism, transnationalism, exile, and other phenomena of our increasingly interconnected world.The field is informed by philosophy, by literary and cultural theory as well as, increasingly, by translation studies and postcolonial studies. Students choosing this MA will come from varied backgrounds such as Foreign Languages, English, Philosophy, Classics, History and Cultural Geography. Knowledge of one or more foreign languages would be desirable but is not presently required.

Aims

This programme will:

  • Introduce you to the history and nature of Comparative Literature as a discipline.
  • Examine interdisciplinary, cross-national approaches to literature and critical theory.
  • Give you greater understanding of cultural contexts and the books which excite our imagination across epochs and cultures.
