Why Warwick? The University of Warwick is a world-leading university, born out of boldness, imagination and collaboration. We’ve built a strong reputation for upholding the highest academic and research standards. Today, more than 27,000 students thrive in a supportive, welcoming space where everything you need to study, live and have fun is close to hand. Explore what Warwick has to offer, and you’ll develop a skillset that sets you apart, and sets you up to succeed. What that success looks like is up to you. The course Literature and History are vitally intertwined. Both subjects ask questions about how human experience is written and recorded – in the past and in the present – and both probe the relationship between what is real and what is represented. In this course, you will think about, question, and blur the line between them: how history always involves modes of representation that are themselves literary, and how literature has imagined and influenced the political and social contours of history. Taught across the English and Comparative Literary Studies and History departments, this degree will allow you to explore these issues from a variety of angles and through a wide range of optional modules that span time and geography: from the medieval to the contemporary, and from Britain to America and the Caribbean. As well as developing your subject knowledge, we will encourage you to develop your own ideas and arguments, to critically analyse what others say and write - and to reflect upon how the disciplines of history and literature might best speak to one another, today and in the future.
