study content

The research-oriented Master's program "Ibero-Romance Cultural Studies" (IRK) is aimed at students with a focus of interest on (inter-)cultural topics who wish to acquire comparative-transnational competencies with reference to the Iberian Peninsula and Latin America. In addition to Spanish- and Portuguese-language media and socio-cultures, the course focuses on transatlantic relations between Europe, the Americas, and Africa, which are examined from both historical and contemporary perspectives, including (post-)colonial and (trans-)areal aspects.
