This exciting new programme combines modules from our established English Literature programme with more specialised study of Drama. Your learning experience will be enhanced by our collaborative relationships with two local theatres – the Everyman & Playhouse and Shakespeare North – and the involvement of theatre practitioners, which offers valuable practical experiences to students.
This is a new programme and is subject to formal university approval.
INTRODUCTION
Alongside the diverse and engaging modules available on the BA English Literature programme, you will have the opportunity to explore dramatic texts from a wide range of eras, culture and genres, thinking about the texts in terms of ‘close reading’ their literary styles and techniques, as well as thinking about the wider social and historical contexts of their creation and performance.
The programme seeks to explore critical responses to drama as a form, from Aristotle’s ‘Poetics’ to currently emerging research and writing, placing the primary reading material in discourse with text and performance theory. You will be encouraged to think beyond the words on the page to their wider lives and meanings in performance, politics, and humanity throughout history.
As you progress, there will be opportunities to focus more closely on specific eras of dramatic history and context and genre, including the advent of public theatre in the sixteenth century, global drama, contemporary playwrights, and writing for radio. You will have opportunities to create original writing for stage and screen, and to engage with theatre practitioners through workshops, Q&A sessions and theatre visits.
