Master's in World Literature

What is "World Literature"? Who decides on the answer to this question, which texts should be included? Which factors play a part? Does it make any sense to hold on to this rather vague concept? The World Literature degree program is about critically examining conventional definitions of "world literature" and redrawing the boundaries in view of the conditions prevailing in a globalized and media-driven world.
