Nineteenth-Century Literary Research
The structure and assessment of this course is the same as for the MA in English Literary Research. But inaddition to attending the postgraduate seminar in research methods, students will be required to participate in the research seminars of the Wordsworth Centre and/or the Ruskin Programme which are devoted to the ongoing study of specific nineteenth century topics (e.g. the Literary Construction of the Lake District, Ruskin and Aesthetics: Modern Painters 1843-1993). But dissertation topics are not confined solely to these fields and we welcome applications related to any aspect of nineteenth century literature and culture, including Romanticism, the novel, literature and theology and the Gothic.
