The MA reflects the (inter)disciplinary and (inter)period interests of a number of staff in English and American Studies - one of the most innovative and exciting subject areas in the School of Arts, Histories and Cultures at the University of Manchester. The research cluster from which this MA emerged, which includes Naomi Baker, Anke Bernau, Jerome de Groot, Terry Eagleton, David Matthews, Gale Owen-Crocker, Jackie Pearson and Alexander Rumble, has an international reputation in a number of the most important themes that are currently stimulating scholarly debate.
You will be taught by scholars who are at the forefront of their fields and are undertaking and publishing cutting-edge research. You will be taught innovative, hands-on research techniques as well as key theoretical approaches; you will be able to use a world-class research library; you will be part of a dynamic graduate community. The department regularly runs postgraduate masterclasses by visiting speakers; seminar leaders have included Steven Knight, Blair Worden, Sharon Achinstein, Ann Hughes, Martin Dzelzainis and Catherine Belsey.
