English Studies (Early Modern Studies 1300-1700)

The programme invites students to choose from a number of distinctive pathways. The Early Modern Studies pathway gives students the opportunity to explore the vibrant culture that existed in Europe between 1300 and 1700. A unique feature of this pathway is that it provides the chance for you to explore the Medieval and Early Modern periods. Our approach to this material is genuinely interrogative, asking what we mean when we talk of the 'Medieval' or the 'Early Modern'. Our approach is also interdisciplinary: you will examine the history, religion, literature, and visual culture of the period, and be taught by experts working in the Departments of English, History, and Modern Languages. The specially designed modules enable students to study some of the most influential writers working in the period 1300-1700, including Chaucer, Erasmus, Shakespeare, Machiavelli, Montaigne, Donne and Milton, and to address the central issues informing current discussions about what constitutes the Medieval and Early Modern periods. Central to the pathway is the approach to the period that focuses on editing, news networks and maps. there is also focus on archival training and study, and the impact of developments in manuscript culture and the new technologies in printing and publishing. In all cases, the aim is to generate a historical understanding of the key movements, debates, and ideas which shaped the period 1300-1700.
