About

The Literary and Cultural Analysis programme of the University of Amsterdam highlights philosophical, political, and social perspectives on culture. The programme is perfectly suited to students who have an active and broad interest in contemporary culture, literature and the arts.

Overview

Exploring literature, the arts, and popular culture

The Literary and Cultural Analysis programme of the University of Amsterdam offers you the intellectual knowledge and skills to interpret and reflect on literature, art and popular culture. Central to the programme is the hands-on engagement with concrete objects – novels, films, poems, operas, television series, art installations, websites, performances, and so on. The detailed analysis of these objects is combined with wide-ranging philosophical, political and social approaches to culture and the arts. In this way, the programme enables you to interpret and evaluate particular texts, images, and objects in relation to larger philosophical explorations and cultural developments.
