University of Sussex
Modern and Contemporary Literature, Culture and Thought
On this programme we attempt to understand how literature has shaped and been shaped by modern and contemporary culture. It includes modules reflecting on urban experience, war, theory and practice, sexuality, British and American aesthetic production, modernism and postmodernism, the contemporary archive, and globalisation. The range of modules on offer and the international excellence of our faculty, embracing research in British, American and postcolonial identity, make the study of modern and contemporary literature at Sussex uniquely dynamic and exciting. This programme is associated with the Centre for Modernist Studies. The Centre invites distinguished speakers from around the world and hosts regular colloquia in English, American studies, and social and postcolonial studies.
