LCT Program Requirements

The Literature and Critical Theory Program will attract students who are interested in exploring existing and generating new links between literature and historical, cultural, political, social, and psychological forces. The program trains students to think about how problems of the present are tied to those of the past, and to consider critically both how we represent this past and how we imagine possible futures. This requires reflecting on the logic of historical transmission and transformation, and on the ways in which cultural forms mediate our experience.
