Program Description:

German at Kent offers an ideal environment for the postgraduate study of literature and culture within a broadly European context. The research interests of our staff cover the entire modern period both within German-speaking countries and across Europe, and include poetry, the European avant-garde, women’s writing, modernism, postmodernism and literary theory. Members of the department are experienced in running international projects and have attracted external funding from prestigious sources such as the Leverhulme Trust and the Humboldt Foundation. In addition to the expertise of our staff, all postgraduates in German benefit from the activities co-ordinated by the Centre for Modern European Literature, including lectures by distinguished guest speakers, research seminars, conferences and reading groups. The MA programme enjoys a broader perspective than many purely German MA programmes, since the University of Kent is one of the few British universities to have a dedicated Department of Comparative Literature. German is part of the School of European Culture and Languages (SECL), which embraces eight other disciplines; our students can draw on the excellent resources of a diverse team of lecturers with expertise in many key areas of European culture. The Centre for Modern European Literature brings together various subjects within the School and ensures a vigorous and lively research culture.
