MA English: Literary London


Course Description

This programme offers you the opportunity to study the rich and varied literary imaginings of London. As well as covering London's literary history from the time of Shakespeare to the present day, this exciting programme encompasses cinematic, postcolonial and documentary constructions of, and responses to the city. It appeals to those who wish to extend their knowledge of literature, explore alternative approaches and perspectives, and broaden their understanding within an interdisciplinary, comparative and international context.

Programme design is structured yet flexible. Courses are taught in weekly seminars that focus on the close study of literary, theoretical and cultural texts. There are also opportunities for site-specific learning through walks as well as museum and gallery visits. You can pursue supporting courses in research methods and theory and produce a final dissertation on a subject of your own choice. You may choose to study relevant courses from the MAs in Creative Writing, Theatre Studies and Media as part of the Literary London Programme.

The aims of the programme are:

- To introduce you to the rich diversity of literary responses to London and to develop your analytical and critical thinking through a variety of guided assessments

- To consider the depiction of London's contested and multicultural identity via a range of theoretical and methodological approaches

- To develop students' research and presentation skills to prepare them for further academic research and the job market

- To foster a dynamic and enjoyable learning environment in which students are encouraged to bring their own experience, writing and reading to bear on the subject of London's literature.
