Comparative Literature and Thought
The MLitt in Comparative Literature and Thought provides unique research training in comparative approaches to literary study and the cross-disciplinary inquiry enabled by modern literary theory and work in fields such as psychoanalysis, post-colonial studies, film, and theory of art. It is designed to accommodate students with undergraduate degrees in French, German, Spanish, or English (fields that are well represented at Aberdeen), or students without a reading knowledge of these languages who would like to pursue comparative study in English translation. The programme therefore offers a preparation for doctoral research either for languages graduates, or for graduates in subjects such as English, who are seeking to develop a comparative dimension in their further studies. The programme will be closely linked both to the new Centre for Modern Thought, and to the Centre for Visual Studies.
