King's College London

Course Introduction

This programme offers students the opportunity to explore medieval literature and language from a number of different yet complementary perspectives. Theoretical perspectives such as cultural studies, gender and sexuality; interdisciplinary projects such as the relationship between the verbal and the visual, or that between the historical, the literary and the cultural, find their place beside the department's traditional strengths in manuscript, lexical and source studies of the period. The pathway offers ample provision for research into the Old and Middle English periods, whether your interest is in eg the materiality of text, the medieval city, postcolonial medieval studies, gender and sexuality, religious writing, romance, drama, Chaucer, Malory, or Langland.

Course Additional Entry

A minimum Honours degree (2.1 or above) in English, or a subject in which English plays a significant part; other disciplines may be considered.
