Gain a taster of our postgraduate teaching in English Literature. Focusing on ‘Oscar Wilde and Actresses’, Dr. John Scholar will invite you to explore a moment in history when actresses first became global celebrities, appearing in mass media and endorsing products. Oscar Wilde apparently worshipped a trio of these starlets, writing them ardent poems. But was this genuine fandom, or a sly career move?
You can also add on a campus tour to your visit. This will complement your subject taster and show you more of what our University has to offer.
