The MA Modern and Contemporary Literature master's course offers an opportunity to become part of an exciting, intellectual group of researchers working in 20th and 21st century literature, culture and theory. Students will undertake an intensive and challenging investigation of the literatures in this period, as well as units that introduce you to leading research in the broad field of modern and contemporary writing. Units provide opportunities to study modernism and its margins, postcolonial writing, radical subcultures, American culture, contemporary fiction and much more. This course focuses theoretically on the relationships between texts and the various contexts in which they're produced and in which they circulate. Through detailed engagements with the minutiae of aesthetic form students will consider the connections between aesthetic and political practice, particularly on representations and constructions of sexuality, class, gender and race.
