This course considers history and literature as vitally intertwined disciplines. You will examine and reflect on how the recording of history involves modes of representation that are themselves literary, and also about how literary texts imagine historical events and ideas – and are themselves shaped by a given social and political moment.
The subjects of history and literary studies share many common concerns. Both ask questions about how human experience is written and recorded – in the past and present – and both probe the relationship between what is real and what is represented. Taught across the Departments of History and of English and Comparative Literary Studies, you will address these issues from a variety of angles and through a wide range of option modules that span time and geography: from the medieval to the contemporary, and from Britain to America and the Caribbean. You will become adept at reading in different ways: on the one hand assessing large quantities of information taken from historical sources (including texts, images, and film), and on the other hand carefully unpacking the details and techniques of just a few lines of a poem, play, or novel. First and foremost, 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.
