Course content

The programme takes a unique interdisciplinary approach, combining insights from the Humanities and the Social Sciences. The course investigates new and historical population movements and their impact on our understanding of contemporary societies; it analyses the transnational flow of cultural texts and products; it takes into focus the role of artists and thinkers in a global cultural network, and brings to light new cultures of dissemination and consumption. It engages transnationalism as an approach that asks new questions about the role of nation and state and opens up inquiries into the creation, articulation and contestation of national identities and collective memories; it explores the role of multilingualism in transnational spaces and the ways in which beliefs about language inform social inclusion and exclusion.
