The novel is not only the most popular genre in modern literature but the most translated. The MLitt in the Novel provides students with a theoretical grounding in the history and critical traditions of the novel, and with the opportunity to study novels from a wide variety of languages and cultures (either in translation or in the original language), tracing the genre's historical development and the ways in which different national traditions have contributed to its evolution. Students are also able to take elective modules which explore the ways in which the novel borders on other academic disciplines such as history, the history of science, medical humanities, migration studies and museum studies.
