The flexible programme structure and small-group, research-led teaching of modules facilitates specialisation in those areas of greatest interest for you, while acquainting you with a relevant range of skills and conceptual frameworks to enhance your study, such as the nature of archival study, genre and textuality, the relationship between print and manuscript, interdisciplinarity, and questions of cultural and political context.
