For complete and up-to-date information about this course, please visit the relevant University of Oxford course page via The English master's programmes are designed to serve both as an autonomous degree for students wishing to pursue more advanced studies in English literature, and as a solid foundation for doctoral research. The English Faculty includes numerous scholars and teachers working in the modern period, as can be seen here. Within the modern period, particular areas of interest among faculty members include modernist poetry, fiction, and drama, the cultural contexts of literature, literature and science, life writing, modern drama and performance studies, contemporary poetry, post-colonial studies and Irish literature. The Bodleian Library, the English Faculty Library, the Taylorian, the History Library and the Rothermere American Institute Library provide a great wealth of resources for the study of modern literature at Oxford. Students are welcome to attend lectures across related disciplines. The faculty has a number of visiting lecturers and writers every year. A. Core course: Literature, Contexts and Approaches The â??Aâ?? course on â??Literature, Context and Approachesâ?? will give a wide overview of genres and critical approaches in the period, covering such topics as the concept of modernity, colonial space, modernist fictional form, literature and visual culture, theatre and revolution, metafiction and late twentieth-century poetics. The course is taught as a weekly seminar that runs over eight weeks in Michaelmas term, and is designed to provide a solid foundation for advanced literary study. B. Core course: Bibliography, Theories of Text, History of the Book, Manuscript Studies This is a range of lectures and seminars in each of the first two terms designed to train students for research in English. Within this strand, there will classes on book history and theories of text, appropriate to the period. C. Special options Special option courses are one-term courses on specialist themes usually relating to the current research interests of the teacher(s). Recent â??Câ?? options for this strand - some of which cross period boundaries - have included: â??Literatures of Empire and Nationâ??, â??Cinema and Modernismâ??, â??Others and J.M. Coetzeeâ??, â??Literature and Psychoanalysisâ??, â??African Literature: Testimony, Life-Writing and Literary Conversationsâ??, â??Locating Contemporary Poetryâ??, â??Nineteenth and Twentieth Century Life-Writingâ??, â??Post-1945 Modern Dramaâ??, â??Joseph Conradâ??, â??Virginia Woolf, Society and Politicsâ??, â??Contemporary Fictionâ?? and â??Policing Literature: 1780-1980â??. Students take one special option in each of the first two terms. The special option courses present an excellent opportunity for you to develop your research interests. You are not constrained to follow option courses within your designated period, and indeed, option courses often traverse the boundaries of the broad periods. D. Dissertation All students write a dissertation of 10,000-11,000 words on a subject of their choice, but related to the work they have been doing over the year. You will be assigned to a member of the faculty who will act as your supervisor. Assessment In addition to the dissertation, you will submit three essays of 6,000-7,000 words â?? one at the end of the first term, and two at the end of the second term â?? relating to the â??Bâ?? and â??Câ?? courses that you have taken. Students normally take all four components to fulfil the requirements of the degree. All course work will be completed by the end of the second term (Hilary term), leaving the summer term (Trinity term) for the writing of the dissertation, which is submitted in early June.
