University of Wales Trinity Saint David (UWTSD)
The programme in Medieval Literature looks closely at the eighth to the twelfth century, including a selection of the period's major works, such as Beowulf, The Faerie Queene, as well as non-canonical and non-literary works by lesser-known authors. Critical attention on this programme is focused especially on continuities and discontinuities between the early medieval and late medieval periods, with a special focus upon Anglo-Saxon heroic literature and medieval dream poetry.
The programme is underpinned by advanced research methods, the study of theoretically informed critical approaches, and the scholarly examination of manuscripts and early printed books.
The University has a well-established record of research and teaching in English. Unusually for the sector, its provision at all levels has enabled students to study Medieval Literature drawing on specialist staff expertise and resources, particularly the holdings of the Special Collections of the Roderic Bowen Library: a unique resource which houses the Special Collections of the University of Wales Trinity Saint David, including over 35,000 printed works, 8 medieval manuscripts, around 100 post medieval manuscripts, and 69 incunabula.
