This workshop has been cancelled, but we plan to offer it again in the Summer 2019 semester. If you are interested, please send an email to academicenglish@uni-leipzig.de, and we will note your interest.



Do you find yourself adrift in a sea of literary theory terms and unsure exactly how to use them? Has your supervisor told you that you need to apply a theory to your work, but the seminal literature on the topic is either confusingly easy or mind-bogglingly difficult? Did that last question confuse you? Come talk through some of the theories that have shaped literary analysis over the past several decades and practice applying them in a non-judgmental setting where you are encouraged to try new things, to be wrong, and to figure out how this is all supposed to work. In particular, we will cover close reading, intertextualism, and narratology, but cognitive, evolutionary, and other cultural approaches will appear as well!

Bachelor’s and master’s students

Students will

  • improve understanding of trends in literary theory;
  • gain more background in some theoretical approaches; and
  • participate in more advanced and thoughtful academic discussions.
