Overview

You will acquire the necessary research skills for advanced literary scholarship, while having the opportunity to pursue areas of interest across historical periods and in a wide variety of genres. The focus of our modules ranges from slavery and empire in Elizabethan writing to the body in contemporary literature, and from Victorian Gothic to fictions of technology in SF. 

With access to local institutions, such as Tate Liverpool and the International Slavery Museum, you will be encouraged to take a global perspective on changing literary, cultural and political landscapes, and invited to explore current critical and theoretical debates. Staff members who teach on our modules are experts in their respective fields, and include New Generation Thinkers, as well as members of the Literature and Science Hub, the Centre for New and International Writing and the Olaf Stapledon Centre for Speculative Futures.
