Queen Mary University of London

Course Introduction

In this pathway, we consider the popular culture of coffee house and tavern, the political world on the street and in parliament, the vocations of women poets and polemicists, polite society and its interests in the management of emotions and arts, epistolary culture, religious dissent, and the metropolitan life of London. We examine Romantic poetics and manifestos, generic innovation and experiment, Romantic science and medicine, Orientalism, travel, relations between British and Continental Romanticism, and the French Revolution and its aftershocks.

This pathway aims to prepare students to formulate a research topic, identify research materials, and present an argument in written and oral form that is formed by alternative interpretations. Students who complete the pathway will be aware of the interdisciplinary debates concerning the literature and history of this period, and will have engaged with a variety of materials: theoretical, visual, historical, and literary. You will also be able to deploy a range of appropriate skills in research, bibliography, and IT.
