English Literature MA

How might the study of literature and culture enable us to understand and explain the everyday world we inhabit and the ways in which different social worlds have been invented and sustained across time and cultures? How might it help us both to explore ourselves and the ways in which we see and understand others? How does such an enquiry affect, and quite possibly change, the way we read texts and read the world? These are the kinds of questions at the core of the MA in English Literature, which is an exciting development in English studies at Brunel, offering the opportunity to study a wide range of topics and periods, from the early Modern/Renaissance through to the modern and contemporary.
