Course summary

Study the MA by Research in Renaissance Studies under the supervision of a specialist member of the Centre. Warwick's Centre for the Study of the Renaissance provides an interdisciplinary research environment where you will conduct a research project, choosing from a wide range of specialist areas.

Course Overview

As this is a personal research project, the choice of the composition of your supervisory team and the methodology of your research will depend on your chosen topic.

Students complete a dissertation of 40,000 words under the direction of academic staff from the Centre’s allied departments (Classics, English, History, History of Art, and the School of Modern Languages and Cultures). Single or joint supervisions are possible. Students are encouraged to audit the core module of the Taught MA in Term Two, develop their language skills, and attend the training sessions offered by the Centre, including Latin for Research, Palaeography, and academic writing skills. The starting month is flexible. The MA by Research is an excellent stepping stone to embarking on a PhD.

Research Themes

History of the Book and Reading Practices; Religious Art, Polemics, Thought, and Literature; The Classical Tradition (including neo-Latin and vernacular cultures; Plato; Aristotle); The History of Ideas (especially science and medicine, ethics and politics); Theatre and Performance (especially in England); Gender; Society and Power; Court and Civic Culture; Renaissance Learned Culture (including humanist circles, academies, universities); Popular Culture; Visual Culture and Debates on the Arts; Venetian Economy, Art and Culture; Travel, Colonialism and the New World.

Teaching and Learning

Students will be able to attend skills training, language, and palaeography sessions provided for our PGT students, and audit some taught MA modules in Renaissance Studies.
