Course content

Study the literature, culture and history of the long 18th century from new perspectives.

Develop your understanding of some of the major issues, debates and discourses that shaped British cultures and their relation to other cultures in the 18th century. Taught by world-leading scholars from the Departments of English, History, History of Art, and Archaeology, you’ll explore many different aspects of the era. You can construct a distinct programme of study from a range of options across the different disciplines. You'll develop an intellectual curiosity that is open to different methods of inquiry, and will carry out a substantial piece of independent research.

You’ll engage with the wider research culture of the Centre for Eighteenth Century Studies, which is based in the historic King's Manor, and be part of the Humanities Research Centre, a vibrant interdisciplinary hub.
