On this course, students will explore literature across time, geography, and genre, combining scholarly research with innovative, practical ways of engaging with texts. Students will grapple with the challenges of conducting research into Shakespeare and other early modern literature, acquiring specialist skills in archival research, palaeography, and the study of rare and antiquated books. Students will also study materials on 18th century drama and literature, visiting the UK’s only surviving Regency Theatre to investigate how architecture affected the content of drama, and how drama reflected Georgian society. Students can also explore the history of genres such as the novel and lyric poetry and study a truly extensive range of work; covering from African American literature, through Caribbean literatures, to the literature and performance of New York, Paris, Berlin, Vienna, Moscow and London.
