Course content

This innovative MA allows you to participate in an on-going dynamic of thinking, reading, and writing with 20th- and 21st-century texts, and to focus on the interrelation of literary, critical, and theoretical works. At its heart is the belief that the critical study of literature can also be inventive.

There are two core modules. Living Modernism is devoted to the radical experiments of early 20th-century writing and the ways such experiments continue to resonate in the 21st century. Archiving the Contemporary explores contemporary writing in its engagement with the literary conventions, cultural heritage, philosophical traditions, and political ideologies it so vigorously interrogates. You will pursue further philosophical, critical, and creative-critical approaches through the choice of optional modules.

Students also have access to the UEA-based British Archive for Contemporary Writing, which includes material from Doris Lessing, J. D. Salinger, Nadine Gordimer, and many others.

Visit the MA Modern and Contemporary Writing page on the University of East Anglia website for more details!
