Office Opening Hours
The Department of English Literatures and Cultures focusses on a wide range of subject areas in teaching and research, from Early Modern Drama via Cognitive Literary Studies, to Australian Studies. One of our key concerns is to explore the links between literatures and cultures – between Literary Studies and Cultural Studies – and to encourage student interest in our areas of research early on. This is very much reflected in the courses we offer. These include a range of introductory seminars, as well as courses providing an overview in literary history and literary and cultural theory. In our BA and MA programs, whether you are doing an English major or minor (Anglistik) or studying to become a teacher (Lehramt), we offer an array of themes and topics for study. These are closely related to our fields of research in
Anglophone literatures and cultures from the Early Modern period to today. We work with a number of universities in the UK, North America, Australia, and South Africa, among other places, to offer students the opportunity to spend one or two semesters in an English-speaking country.
