Queen Mary University of London
English Studies (English Literature)
The course asks students to reflect on some crucial questions: how have ideas about literature and literary value changed over time? What effects do innovations in printing and publishing have on writing? To what extent do political and social factors condition and define authorial identities and practices? In answering these questions students consider the relationship between literatures from a variety of historical periods.
