Course content

The Romantic Worlds Masters focuses on the art and culture of the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries: a period of radical change and rancorous turmoil during which writers and artists forged works and ideals that continue to exert profound influences over the ways in which we think about our environments, selves and societies. While the pathway provides ample opportunities to engage with the works of canonical Romantic poets and with the great novels written during the period, its approach is interdisciplinary. As well as providing groundings in advanced literary studies and in the traditional cornerstones of British Romanticism, the programme’s courses range across fields including art history, ecocriticism, sociology and urban studies, studying caricature, travel writing, drama, topography, periodicals, portraiture and music alongside novels and poetry. The pathway includes numerous opportunities to work with collections in and around Glasgow.
