This programme will introduce you to the intrinsic complexities of the history of Anglo-German cultural relations since the late eighteenth century, and the current practices of cultural exchange between the two countries. The programme will offer you a unique opportunity to engage with practitioners from the media, publishing and cultural organisations and familiarize you with theoretical, critical and methodological questions in the field of cultural transfer. We aim to engage you in reflecting on the development and significance of Anglo-German cultural relations, analysing history and current practice.
The core course focuses on the theory and practice of cultural transfers and brings students into contact with representatives of cultural institutions working in this field, through work experience placements. It will make students aware of how to build on and deepen the skills and knowledge gained as undergraduates when analysing and assessing the various aspects of cultural transfers, such as the significance of translation relations, or patterns of mutual perception since 1800.
