Medieval English: Sex, Gender & Culture
This programme offers students the opportunity to explore medieval literature and language from a number of different yet complementary perspectives. Theoretical perspectives such as cultural studies, gender, and sexuality; interdisciplinary projects such as the relationship between the verbal and the visual, or that between the historical, the literary and the cultural, find their place beside the department’s traditional strengths in manuscript, lexical, and source studies of the period. The pathway offers ample provision for research into the Old and Middle English periods, whether your interest is in, e.g., the materiality of text, the medieval city, postcolonial medieval studies, gender and sexuality, religious writing, romance, drama, Chaucer, Malory, or Langland.
