  • Academic Title
    MA in Women, Gender and Literature
  • Course description
    Founded in the 1980s, this MA was the first of its kind at a British University, offering a literature-based approach to women's studies. It has been recently redesigned in response to changing trends in the fields of gender studies and women's writing, to give students both a sound training in research methods and the opportunity to study texts from a variety of different literary genres across different historical periods from the Middle Ages to the twentieth century and beyond. The normal entry requirement is a good BA degree in English or a related subject.

    This programme will appeal to students interested in gender issues in nineteenth-century and contemporary literature but also draws on the work of historical feminist figures with a close connection to Hull, such as Mary Wollstonecraft (1759-97), the author of the first British feminist manifesto, A Vindication of the Rights of Woman (1792), who lived in Beverley between the ages of 9 and 15, and the early twentieth-century feminist writer Winifred Holtby (1898-1935), who immortalised Hull ('Kingsport') and her Yorkshire neighbourhood in her masterpiece South Riding (1936)
