    Course description
    This MA stresses the plurality of materials and perspectives as course options will touch on disciplines as varied as cultural theory, literary history, national and regional literatures, gender and sexuality as well as representation itself. The decision to use the plural forms of the key terms 'literature' and 'culture' also reflects our intention to signal the discursive and ideological diversity and openness of the debates to which students will be introduced. This broad programmatic scope will appeal to students as it leaves plenty of leeway for individual specialisation and whilst profoundly historical in its overall stance, the programme never looses sight of the present as its most immediate point of reference.
