Eighteenth-Century Studies

This course offers an intellectually dynamic introduction to one of the most exciting eras in literary history. Grounded in and administered from the Centre for Studies in the Long Eighteenth Century, this is an interdisciplinary programme that builds upon the expertise and common research interests of 18th-century researchers and teachers across the Faculty of Humanities. The Centre provides an excellent research context for the programme and any further postgraduate work that will arise from it.
