Course Introduction

You will divide your time equally between the two subjects. Comparative literature makes connections between literary texts of different times, places and traditions and between literature and philosophy, film, music, and the visual arts. History complements the study of literature, enabling you to gain an understanding of the historical contexts in which literature is conceived. The History programme covers all the main themes in medieval, modern and contemporary history, ranging from British to European and American topics. Advanced module options in the second and final years enable you to concentrate on the areas of literature and history that interest you most.
