The MA in 20th- and 21st-Century Literature will enable you to explore the complex cultural histories of literatures in English – national, minority, dissident, and diasporic – from the twentieth century to the present, and offers advanced training in the combined uses of close textual study, history and theory. Individual modules trace the paradoxes of modernity within the intersecting discourses of aesthetics, education, ethnicity, nationalism, legality, science, sexuality and urbanization.
The MA is a specialist programme that allows you to focus in literature, culture and thought in the long twentieth century. The programme is closely linked to the Centre for Contemporary Writing at the University of Southampton. The MA can be used as professional training, or as preparation for PhD study at Southampton and elsewhere. Students in our programme benefit from small-group teaching with world-leading experts in modern and contemporary literature; creative writing; postcolonial studies; literature and science; poetics; and literature and law.
