Culture, Literature and Politics

This degree, taught jointly with UEA’s world-renowned School of Literature, Drama and Creative Writing, allows you to combine the study of literature with politics and culture. You will have a great deal of choice in what you study, building a degree that closely reflects your own interests and questions. At the same time, you will develop a range of analytical and practical skills that will serve you in a wide range of future careers. Whether your interest is in Shakespeare or post-colonial literature, whether it is the literature of Germany, Russia or the United States, there will be modules that allow you to develop your knowledge and understanding. The choice you have goes from the modern day to the Medieval period. It covers poetry, fiction, autobiography and more. It also combines literature with issues of human rights, political satire, and feminist politics. And you’ll have the chance to study topics such as music and comics as well. You will study the way politics links with the worlds of culture and literature, through modules on popular culture, identity and gender. You’ll also learn about the broader political context, through the study of political ideas and processes. This is a course that spans several disciplines and subject areas. It makes considerable demands of those who study it, but your efforts will be rewarded in the range of knowledge, understanding and skills you acquire over your three years. **Course Structure** **Year 1** Because the degree in Culture, Literature and Politics covers so much, it is important that you have a solid grounding in the key knowledge and skills. In your first year, therefore, you take a number of compulsory modules that provide the necessary groundwork for your subsequent studies. Through these you will be introduced to the study of culture, media, literature and politics. In addition you will be able to select two optional modules. **Year 2** Once you are in your second year, you will be able to choose from modules in the key areas of your degree. This means a choice of topics in politics and culture, such as global political economy, language and politics, film in Latin America, gender and power, the politics of the USA, or digital media and society. Your choices in literature may include political theatre or modernism, contemporary fiction or Jane Austen and the Brontes. **Year 3** This same kind of choice greets you in your third year, but with greater opportunity to specialise in particular areas of culture, literature and politics. You’ll also have the opportunity to complete a dissertation under the supervision of a member of academic staff. **Disclaimer** Course details are subject to change.
