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. In line with the other MSt strands in the English Faculty, the MSt is made up of four elements: The descriptions below supply more detail on the A, B and C courses. The MSt programme is assessed via the submission of four pieces of coursework. In addition to the dissertation, you will submit three essays of 6,000 to 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 B and C courses that have been taken. A. Core course: The Colonial, the Postcolonial, the World â?? Literature, Contexts and Approaches The â??Aâ?? course, which runs in Michaelmas term, comprises eight 1.5 to 2-hour seminars and is intended to provide a range of perspectives on some of the core debates, themes and issues shaping the study of world and postcolonial literatures in English. Each seminar will be led by a member of the Faculty of English or other relevant faculty and will include one or more short presentations from students on the weekâ??s topic. There is no assessed A course work, but students are asked to give at least one presentation on the course, and to attend all the seminars. The methodologies you will encounter on this course are intended to prepare you for situating your dissertation in a chosen field of research. You should read as much as possible of the bibliography over the summer â?? certainly the primary literary texts listed in the seminar reading for each week. B. Core course: Bibliography, theories of text, history of the book, manuscript studies This is a compulsory, assessed course, taught via a range of lectures and seminars in each of the first two terms. The B-course for the MSt in World Literature strand introduces students to the methodologies and theories of bibliography, manuscript studies, textual scholarship, and book history framed within the broad concerns and methodologies of world literature book history and the emergence and institutionalisation of the categories of world and postcolonial literature within global and local literary spaces and the publishing industry. The course begins in Michaelmas with a general introduction to theories and methodologies of material textual scholarship (â??Material Texts 1800-presentâ??) alongside an introduction to manuscript study and archive use in world literature (â??Material Methodologyâ??). In late Michaelmas and Hilary it moves on to specific discussion of the institutions of world literature, culminating in student presentations and feedback on the B course essay project in weeks 3-6 of Hilary term. C. Special options Students are able to choose from â??Câ?? course options concerned specifically with World Literatures, as well as from any other â??Câ?? course options on offer in the English MSt. D. Dissertation You will write a 10,000 to 11,000-word dissertation on a subject of your choice, but related to the work you have been doing over the year. You will be assigned to a member of academic staff who will act as your supervisor.
