Term 2 of our MA English programmes began today. Over the next twelve weeks, students on the English Now 2 core module will discuss writing by Alexander Masters, Colm Toibin, Hilary Mantel, Sarah Waters, Andrea Levy, Zadie Smith and others. The optional modules London Now, Literary Theory in the 21st Century and Nineteenth Century Life Writing are also running this term. For more information on the programmes please click on the tabs above.
Twelve MA English Studies and MA 21st Century Literature students took part in a postgraduate symposium at the university on 19th December. Presenting to an audience of their peers and their tutors, students on modules covering Contemporary American Fiction, Reading Trauma in the 21st Century, and Poetry and Poetic Culture in the Nineteenth Century delivered polished 20-minute papers throughout the day. The standard of the work was extremely high, discussions were supportive and lively, and this was a great way to end the term. Some photographs of the event can be seen on the ‘Symposia’ page.
Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

This term’s postgraduate symposium is nearly with us. On December 19th MA English Studies and MA 21st Century Literature students will gather to present 20 minute research papers to an audience of their peers and English faculty members. Our biannual symposia give students an opportunity to exchange ideas, develop presentation skills, and socialise in a familiar, convivial environment. It promises to be a excellent end to the term.
