About

Comparative Literature at the Karlstad University centres on different forms of transgression in terms of theme, content, and interdisciplinarity.

Overview

Features

The doctoral programme in Comparative Literature at the Karlstad University gives candidates the necessary skills to establish themselves as researchers in the field. Students accepted to the programme are both given the broad foundation needed to pursue their dissertations, as well as the opportunity to specialise in the areas of their degree projects.

The programme includes a course in literary theory and method, an individual literary history course, as well as reading courses adapted to students’ needs. In addition we encourage doctoral students, if possible, to participate in some of the national doctoral courses offered by Comparative Literature departments, or to take part in courses offered jointly in the Nordic countries.

Programme Structure

Research topics include:

  • poems as performance
  • rock lyrics and experimental poetry
  • the interaesthetic and intermedial art of the avantgarde
  • violence in literature
  • content and form boundary-crossing prose
  • regional literature as an alternative to both national and global literature
  • new ways of viewing fiction and fact
