History of Art and Literature - University of East Anglia

**About This Course** Study word and image in unison and gain a deeper understanding of the intertwined histories of art and literature. You’ll encounter the most important periods and movements of European, British and American art and literature. At the same time you’ll broaden your horizons by exploring the arts of other cultures, including those of the Pacific, Africa and the Americas. On this course you’ll benefit from the expertise of both the department of Art History and World Art Studies and the world-leading School of Literature, Drama and Creative Writing. You will explore the intimate relationships forged between artistic movements both literary and visual, from the strong links between literature and church architecture of the medieval period to the literary impressionism of the modernist period, to experimentation with word and image in postmodernity. **Overview** You’ll be equipped with key skills in imaginative understanding, critical thinking, and confident communication. You’ll expand and deepen your understanding of texts and artworks from a uniquely wide array of contexts while developing your intellectual and professional skills via your interaction with outstanding academics in both literature and history of art. You’ll establish firm foundations in both disciplines through your engagement with different documents and sources. At the same time you’ll encounter works of art at first hand in the collections of the internationally recognised Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts, which includes works of modern European art and also outstanding works from Africa, Asia and the Americas. In your second and third years you’ll select from a range of optional modules in order to pursue your own interests in more depth. This will enable you, for example, to explore the medieval period through texts such as Julian of Norwich’s Revelations of Divine Love and Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales and through monuments such as the great cathedrals, including, of course, those of Norwich and Canterbury. Or you might choose to examine the 20th century through the history of modernist texts and modernist art, by studying movements such as Surrealism. As you progress through the course, you’ll be encouraged to engage with different methods and approaches and to develop informed views of your own. You will consolidate your independence as a scholar through the completion of a research dissertation in your final year. This course is delivered by UEA’s world-leading department of Art History and World Art Studies. Our main areas of research are the history of art and architecture in Europe and North America; the arts of Africa, Asia, Oceania and South America; the archaeology and anthropology of art; and museum studies and cultural heritage.

Norwich is England's first UNESCO City of Literature and it boasts a vibrant literary community. Great literature has been produced here from the 14th century, when Julian of Norwich became the first woman to write a book in English, right up to 20th and 21st century work by UEA graduates like Nobel Prize winner Kazuo Ishiguro, Booker Prize winner Ian McEwan and Costa Award winning author Emma Healey.
