Overview Literature and history are closely intertwined subjects, and this degree enables you to study them together, under the guidance of our leading historians, literary critics and creative writers. This genuinely interdisciplinary course gives you a grounding in the core knowledge and practices that are essential to each subject, bringing them together in unique bridge modules, and in a diverse and exciting range of optional modules from both disciplines. About This Course Historians and literary critics often read the same documents, but they bring to them different approaches and employ different methods of analysis. This degree gives you the opportunity to learn and experiment with both ways of reading. In learning the skills of close textual analysis and engaging with narrative form, you will become a historian with a marked sensitivity to sources and a lively and engaging writing style. As you encounter arguments about historical causality and assess conflicting accounts of historical events, you’ll become a literary critic with a complex grasp of the social, political and cultural contexts in which literature is produced. The two disciplines enrich each other, and the diverse range of experts here combine to deliver you a course that is both flexible and distinctive. It’s up to you to set the precise balance between literature and history as your degree progresses – you might take an equal number of modules in both, or gradually specialise in one or the other discipline. You’ll be taught by specialists from two world-leading UEA departments – the School of Literature, Drama and Creative Writing and the School of History. Studying in Norwich gives you access to a city rich in historical and cultural artefacts, and vivid literary and dramatic life. This unique degree also offers you many opportunities to extend your studies beyond the classroom, into archives of literary and historical manuscripts, and out to sites of historical and cultural importance. You can follow the School of Literature, Drama and Creative Writing on Instagram to keep up with our activities! Disclaimer Course details are subject to change.
