At the same time as your encounters with writers such as Mark Twain and Toni Morrison, you’ll explore the rich heritage of English literature with the School of Literature, Drama and Creative Writing. You’ll study the wealth of literature in English, reaching back to Chaucer, Julian of Norwich and beyond, and forwards to writers such as Kazuo Ishiguro, Ian McEwan and Ali Smith.All of those experiences will enrich your final year, during which you will take a series of advanced classes and write a dissertation on a topic of your choice.**Overview**You’ll study literature from a global perspective, exploring a wide range of genres – novels, poetry, film, and even comic books – and gain a detailed knowledge of the American and English literary traditions.You’ll get to grips with issues relating to race, gender and civil liberties in America.

In doing so, you’ll gain an understanding of the major cultural and historical ideas that have shaped American literature from the pre-colonial era to the present day. You will develop an understanding of the Transatlantic relationship, and the way that American and English literature have developed in close conversation with each other over the last few centuries.You’ll be studying in a UNESCO City of Literature with a vibrant contemporary writing scene and have the opportunity to spend your third year studying in America or Canada with an option to spend a semester in Australia, New Zealand, or Hong Kong.**Disclaimer** Course details are subject to change.
