OSL joins the Institute for World Literature (IWL)

We are happy to announce that OSL has just become a member of the Institute for World Literature (IWL). IWL is directed by David Damrosch (Harvard), and has several affiliated institutions all over the world; OSL is the only member institution for the Netherlands.
Every summer, IWL organizes a four-week programme at one of its associated venues, featuring an outstanding line-up of leading scholars in comparative literature. In 2020, the IWL programme will take place in Belgrade, from 6 to 30 July. Affiliated institutions have guaranteed places for two participants every year, who will also benefit from a 50% discount on tuition fees (please find more details here).
OSL PhD candidates can submit their application via this online form by 1 February 2020. However, in order to facilitate the procedure, OSL will have a round of internal selection before that. To this end, if you are interested in applying please send us a cv + short letter of motivation (maximum 750 words) by Monday 13 January 2020. All applications should be sent to osl@rug.nl; please feel free to contact us for more information regarding the procedure.
