The writing and thought of the Romantic period has long been central to the study of modern literatures in English, and recent developments in literary theory have underlined the continuing importance of changing conceptions and practices of literature and philosophy in this period.
Whether your interests lie in major figures such as Wordsworth, Scott or Mary Shelley, or more neglected writers such as Joanna Baillie; or in the relationship between literature and philosophy, or literature and society, the MSc by Research in Romanticism offers students the opportunity to undertake a substantial piece of supervised independent research in their chosen field of Romantic Studies.
We can supervise research in any area of the field, and have particular strengths in philosophical approaches to romantic literature, in Irish and Scottish romanticism, and in the eighteenth century background to romantic literature.
Please note that your choice of options depends on availability and will be decided in consultation with your supervisor.
