English Literary Studies (Eighteenth Century)

The programme comprises a wide range of topics and approaches, enabling students to practise textual, cultural and theoretical modes of analysis important to advanced research in English and the humanities in general. The dissertation allows you to focus on a single topic. This pathway allows you to specialise in the history and culture of the long eighteenth century through interdisciplinary study encompassing literature, history, philosophy and visual and material culture. You will be introduced to concepts and issues central to current research, and will study the unique collection of early women's writing at Chawton House Library.
