Overview

The course introduces a breadth of study that includes modern and traditional literature, cultural study and critical analysis, Shakespeare and rap poetry. The study of non-performative texts alongside an appreciation of performance allows students a chance to think about how literary influences help to shape today’s theatre, and allows students to consider how to adapt literary texts for theatrical production.

In Year 1, English Literature elements provide an awareness of the range of different approaches to understanding texts and develop skills of critical analysis, research and writing. This is done through the study of an assortment of texts from various periods in history across the genres of prose fiction, poetry and drama. Drama modules in Year 1 provide students insights into the history of drama, the context in which dramatic production has taken place, how to make theatre, the political underpinning of texts and practices, and the ways in which texts
and performances are viewed and interpreted.

In Year 2, modules involve study of a group of texts representative of a period of history, a particular genre or a particular area of the world. The theories and practices that underpin the development of drama are explored, alongside practical aspects of performance.

In Year 3, a specific collection of writings, a particular theme or critical theory is considered in detail. Modules here tend to be closely related to the research interests of teaching staff and engage with cutting-edge developments in the discipline. The Drama Group Project allows students to create small companies to make a major performance or develop an applied/Theatre-in-Education project.
