Literature of the Romantic Period 1775-1832
By examining the selected literary and aesthetic works in the light of the historical circumstances in which they were produced, the MA offers participants the chance to develop a broad view of the major changes in sensibility and ideology of the period, and to investigate such contemporary issues as: the representation of landscape or revolution; the place of women as writers; the role of the periodicals as a cultural medium and the importance of ideas of Empire and the Orient; Romantic aesthetic theory and poetic practice.
Applicants for MA programmes in English and related literature will normally be expected to have obtained upper 2nd Class honours, or equivalent, in an appropriate subject.
Module includes: romantic texts and contexts, research skills training programme; a research dissertation. There are 3 optional modules available, which may be taken in other arts and humanities departments, and vary from year to year.
Essays and a dissertation.
A range of scholarships and studentships are available at postgraduate level. Some scholarships are funded by the University (such as the York Master's Opportunity Scholarship) and some are funded by Research Councils, alumni, businesses and charities. Please check with the provider for details.
