You investigate literature in diverse historical, political and cultural contexts. You have the opportunity to study from one of the most extensive ranges of literature of any UK university, covering over 1,000 years of literary production. You have the opportunity to apply for a year studying abroad. This gives you a unique opportunity to immerse yourself in another culture. You’ll read texts closely, paying attention to form and to language. You also ask broader questions about how literary texts are shaped by larger cultural forces. You interrogate what we read, how we read, and why we read, in order to produce your own critical and creative response to the world we live in today.
