University of Lincoln

Twenty-First Century Literature

This programme is taught by experts and informed by the thriving 21st Century research community at the University of Lincoln. It enables students to gain a critical understanding of current developments in literature by sampling a diverse variety of postmillennial texts. Students will develop a thorough knowledge of literary genres and advance their research, communication and writing skills. Students will benefit from engagement with the University's 21st Century Research Group, which includes strengths in contemporary theatre, utopian literature and creative writing, and the University's biennial international conference on 21st Century literature. Presenting papers twice a year at MA symposia will help students develop their skills in independent research, public speaking and presentation.
