Course content

Our 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.

You'll 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.

We focus theoretically on the relationships between texts and the various contexts in which they're produced and in which they circulate.

Via detailed engagements with the minutiae of aesthetic form, we consider the connections between aesthetic and political practice, with particular focus on representations and constructions of sexuality, class, gender and race.
