Course summary

Combine your love of English literature with learning about the sociopolitical history behind it.What’s the relationship between a piece of writing and the context in which it was written? How are writers affected by their circumstances? What influence do literary texts have on social, cultural and political life?This popular joint degree links the social and political history of a period with its literary texts, giving you the chance to reflect on these questions and consider how the two disciplines relate to and inform one another.You’ll examine the interaction between writing and society, studying core history and English modules, and gain increasing freedom to study the topics and historical periods that interest you most - whether that's discovering the impact of the French Revolution on English art or walking through the London of Defoe, Dickens, Virginia Woolf or Monica Ali.You can also apply for this course-with a Year Abroad
