Welcome to Literary Studies


Literary studies at the University of Erfurt brings together research in various disciplines concerned with forms, media, and practices of representation. These disciplines include Comparative literature, German literature, American literature, English literature, and Romance and Slavic studies.

The degree programmes we offer include

At the University of Erfurt, literary studies is a transdisciplinary field that combines the study of multiple European and American literatures in relation to each other.
