Course summary

Summary

Our MA Popular Literature and Culture is the first in the country to take a period-based, interdisciplinary approach to popular literary and cultural forms. The programme spans a number of diverse disciplines such as English literature, cultural studies, film and television studies, race studies, gender and sexuality studies, history, environmental studies, and philosophy, delving into different time periods and exploring thematic topics within them.

The programme encompasses multiple periods - from the medieval and the early modern periods, the Victorian and Edwardian ages, and 20th century and contemporary cultures. You will be taught by staff from across the disciplines, whose expertise lies not only in the form being taught but also the textual culture of that specific period. All of the staff members who will teach you are active researchers in their field and will use that research to inform their teaching, offering you innovative modules that are fresh, exciting, and contemporary. Students can also exit with PGCert and PGDip awards.
