Literary studies

The Literary Studies research area brings together researchers and doctoral students who are involved in literary studies and cultural studies, comparative literature and literary and cultural theory within the different language subject areas offered at the Department of Languages and Literatures.

The research area’s seminar activities include presentations of work in progress, invited guest speakers and text seminars where we read and discuss selected texts. If you would like to receive information about upcoming seminars, please subscribe to our e-mail list.

The seminars are usually in Swedish, so you will find our list of current seminars on our Swedish website. (Select "Swedish" in the menu at the top)
