The Graduate School Practices of Literature offers a structured doctoral programme in Literary Studies. The joint research is centred on the relationship between literature/literary studies and society. Additional focal points of our programme include theory of science as well as theory of literature and literary studies. Also, the programme addresses various issues for the professional application of literary expertise while enabling students to gain hands-on experience in career relevant non-academic environments. Thus, our programme’s mission is to link theory and practice through an interdisciplinary approach, treating them not as opposites but rather interdependent counterparts of a lively exchange.
For the upcoming winter semester, some of our GSPoL graduate students again offer project groups, one of which is "Lesegruppe Literaturtheorie" (Reading Group Theory of Literature). All those interested (especially bachelor students) are cordially invited to attend!
