Course summary

About this course

LJMU's MRes in English enables you to carry out an independent research project in the field of English Studies.

  • Work alongside active researchers in the field
  • Benefit from specialist supervision and study within a diverse community of fellow researchers
  • Discover the wide variety of approaches currently practised in the discipline

The MRes seeks to extend your knowledge of literary and cultural history while developing your analytical and critical skills. It is also intended to cultivate an understanding of research as a specific activity.

The programme is delivered by academics actively engaged in research under the aegis of the Research Centre for Literature and Cultural History at LJMU. Key areas of specialism include early modern literature and culture; gender and sexuality; medical humanities; 19th century literature and history; regional, national and postcolonial literatures; contemporary and everyday cultures; literature and cultural geography; 20th century and contemporary writing (British, Irish, Scottish, American).

Over the course of the programme you will be introduced to key developments in the field of literary studies and given the skills necessary to produce a successful postgraduate research project. You will be working individually with a supervisor throughout the year, as well as taking part in taught modules with fellow English MRes students and others across the Faculty. In addition, you will take part in the wider research activities of the English department itself.
