MA in English Language and Culture deals with a wide variety of literary movements and genres. You study literature in an international context, as English indeed is a language used all over the globe. Therefore you not only read texts taken from the ‘traditional’ canon of British and American literature, you also pay attention to texts in English from such different areas as the Caribbean, South Africa, and India.
Literature knows no boundaries in space and time, and here at the English Department in Leiden you can study literature within the enormous variety of English texts available.
