MLitt in Modernities: Literature, Theory, and Culture

University of Glasgow

The one-year MLitt program provides the opportunity for advanced study of literary modernism and the avant-garde, as well as postmodern and contemporary developments in culture and theory. Guided by a team of world-class experts in these fields, students investigate the key texts and concepts which shape our understanding of literature and culture across a period of radical change. Throughout, texts studied are related to developments in other cultural practices, such as film, theater and the visual arts.

The program includes field trips and lectures by visiting scholars, and students pursue individual interests through optional courses, such as: Proust In Theory; Virginia Woolf Writes Modernity; Queer Fictions; F. Scott Fitzgerald, Edith Wharton and Dialogues of American Literary Modernity;  The Modern Everyday; The American Counterculture 1945-75; The Mind of the Contemporary American Novel; and The Novel Now.
