Course content

As part of our MA in Global Literatures and Cultures you will work with leading scholars to explore the works of literature, art and thought that have shaped our global culture. We offer first-class teaching and supervision from leading experts in the literature and cultures of Modern Europe (including the United Kingdom and Russia), as well as China, the United States, North Africa and the Global South.

Our research covers all periods from the medieval to the contemporary, with expertise in literary studies, textual editing and criticism, film and visual art, architecture and museum culture, so you are able to shape the generic, chronological and geographical focus of your studies according to your interests.

Reflecting the increasingly plurilingual nature of contemporary societies, our interdisciplinary MA encourages you to read texts in the original language wherever possible, whilst also broadening your horizons via the study of texts and films in translation. You may also choose to take the optional Global Literatures and Cultures Work Placement module. This practice-based module will enable you to plan and arrange a placement with an external cultural organisation in which you will work on a commissioned project, allowing you to develop work-based skills and experience.
