Course summary

The study of gender in cultural texts and processes encompasses a dynamic diversity of literary, language and film contexts and critical fields of enquiry.

This programme provides you with the opportunity to focus intensively on the construction of gender and sexuality in texts from an exceptional range of historical periods and locations – from the Middle Ages to the present, in Asian, European, South American and North American contexts – and encourages critical engagement with established and emerging approaches in fields of enquiry including: Feminism; queer theory; critical theory; postcolonialism.

The programme draws on the teaching and research expertise of a great range of scholars across the School working in internationally renowned departments, including several of the highest rated literature departments in the UK and the oldest department of English Literature in the world.
