"This is the compulsory core module for students taking the MA in English Literature. By focusing on the production of texts in a range of historical periods, and by considering different genres of writing, the module is designed to prepare you for the three special options you will choose from across the spectrum of the Department's postgraduate taught programmes. The Production of Texts in Context investigates selected historical case studies in order both to provide you with an advanced understanding of the material and social conditions in which texts are produced, disseminated, and read, and to prompt you to reflect critically upon the significance of literary-historical enquiry for the present-day interpretation of texts. The module will thereby equip you with a sound historical and conceptual preparation for the further study of literary writing at Masters level and beyond, whether or not your interests are specific to a particular period."
