University of East Anglia UEA

Medieval and Early Modern Textual Cultures, 1381-1688

This MA course offers the opportunity to study medieval and early-modern literature in its historical, intellectual, cultural and material contexts. The MA has a strongly interdisciplinary character, which means students will be introduced to the broad range of cutting-edge methods by which scholars are currently researching the cultures of these periods and students are given an advanced introduction to a range of major English texts from the period and to the continental European authors who informed and shaped them. At the centre of the course is an emphasis on the varieties of medieval and early-modern 'humanism', a complex movement which enabled new understandings of the classical world, of our place within history and of our relationship to language and by enabling students to work closely with local archival sources the MA will leave them with a strong understanding of the way in which global narratives, like the rise of 'humanism' or the 'early-modern', shaped the rich literary and intellectual culture of Norwich itself.
