Welcome to English Literature at the University of Bamberg

The subject area “English Literature” covers the literature of the UK and Ireland as well as the so called “New Literatures in English” in their entirety, ranging from the Middle Ages to the present day. Our curriculum places a particular focus on embedding literature in historical, political, social and cultural contexts. Moreover, various kinds of texts are examined against the background of a broad definition of literature. The department’s profile is oriented towards interdisciplinarity and cultural studies, and specific emphasis is placed on applying and critically reflecting on different models of literary and cultural theory.
