Online student book club
The Purloined Letter is an online book club for and by students of English literature at VU University Amsterdam. Every two months we read an English-language novel and discuss it on the forum. In addition, we provide links to background material, including academic essays, podcasts, film adaptations, et cetera. This way, we hope to create an active online reading community that generates insightful literary analyses.
Online academic journal
Digressions: Amsterdam Journal of Critical Theory, Cultural Analysis, and Creative Writing is a student-run online academic journal based at VU University Amsterdam. We publish articles on critical theory and cultural analysis; reviews of books, films, and art exhibitions; and pieces of creative writing. This way, we aim to provide a platform for ambitious MA and PhD students to share their cutting-edge research.
