Program Overview

General Information:-

The Program in World Literature and Culture Studies is dedicated to the study of literature and cultures in a broad interlingual, intercultural and interdisciplinary framework. It offers students the opportunity to explore various cultures and literatures through the study of texts, either in their original language or in translation and to develop a more global consciousness and awareness through cultural literacy. World Literature and Culture Studies introduces students to:

  • The literature of two or more languages and cultures
  • Questions and theories about literatures and cultures
  • Contemporary and/or historical perspectives on two or more cultures

The study of different texts and cultures will enrich and enhance students' understanding of their own as well as of other cultures. This process is facilitated by the systematic comparison of such questions as literary genres, periods, movements, and dominant themes and motifs, or in the context of the mutual impact of two or more national or regional cultures.

Why World Literature and Culture Studies:-

Globalization, democratization, and post-colonial forces continue to powerfully shape our increasingly complex and interconnected world. World Literature and Culture Studies provides a valuable opportunity to study these relationships as expressed in literary and other cultural texts from a variety of perspectives.

Those who would otherwise choose to study one national or regional literature may find here a broader frame of reference for their interest. Students have the opportunity to read intriguing and challenging texts from around the world while discovering the connections between literature and other disciplines and among the various literatures studied in the program; this program offers students the possibility of exploring the relations between literature and such areas as ideology, colonialism, film and other visual arts, gender studies, political thought, and International Development Studies.

World Literature and Culture Studies allows students to improve their analytical and critical thinking skills, develop their abilities in expository writing and oral communications, expand the context of functionality in a second or even third language. Finally, students not only gain perspective on the world, but also deeper insights into their own culture.
