Researchers practising literary-and-cultural studies [LCS] examine a vast range of social and cultural objects through the lens of literary thinking – analysing textuality, fictionality, rhetoricity and historicity, and developing ‘cultural literacy’. How can LCS research and cultural literacy contribute to solving the major challenges of Europe today?
