How do those who move through the world describe their experiences in writing? What values and perspectives can be found in texts that document the experience of travel? This course focuses on important concepts from postcolonial theory and cultural studies to analyze the different mobilities represented in works of literature: from travel and tourism to migration and displacement.


Roughly 15 minutes with a bike from the city centre, you will find Linnaeus University’s campus. It is like a small society with the university, student accommodation, and student life. Here you become part of a creative knowledge environment.

What will you come across on an excursion in Växjö – the city of contrasts? You will find good restaurants, a celebrated hockey team, and cozy cafés where you can enjoy a latte with lingonberry flavour. In Växjö, beautiful nature is always just around the corner; the city is surrounded by lakes and forests. Students like the combination of the city centre and the active student life on campus. Your dream of the future starts here!
