Looking for Theory-Oriented Programs

Recommended Posts

Hello! I am a foreign student looking for CompLit programs w/ a strong theoretical focus.

I want to do work on autofiction and autobiography, and its possible correlations with phenomenology - what are the phenomenological underpinnings or presuppositions of autobiographical work, and what kind of phenomenology of reading could be devised from a singular autobiography? I worked a lot on French Continental philosophy during my undergrad, specifically Derrida, so I would welcome any program that is open to a deconstructionist approach in regards to my questions. 

Have you got any recommendations as to which programs I could apply? I already have on my list DePaul (philosophy), Emory and NYU.

Thank you so much :)

I don't know anything about their Comp Lit department, but UC Irvine's English department is very well known for its strength in critical theory, and both Derrida and J. Hillis Miller worked there at one point. It could be worth a perusal.
