Literature, Landscape and Environment
The course examines how literature reflects and shapes the way in which we see the landscape and the environment and it gives students the opportunity to study the kind of analyses that are becoming increasingly important to the direction of modern English literary studies; the programme provides students with an excitingly wide range of issues and approaches in relation to the representations of various kinds of landscapes; it presents: a mix of thematic topics, types of landscape and regions; a balance between literature pre- and post-1900; a range of methodologies (eg Marxism, historicism, ecocriticism, archival research, mapping technology); although its main focus is literary, material culture or real places may also be examined (eg the iconography and design of an English country estate, the materiality of the London Lord Mayor's show, the Eden Project, the specific topography of journeys or locales).
Modules include: research (methods, resources, dissemination); the country and the city in history; environmental writing and ecocriticism; chorographies (case studies in region or place); dissertation/project.
The course is assessed by essays, an annotated bibliography, research proposals, and a dissertation or project.
