Summary

This pathway of the MA in Literary Studies aims to enhance your knowledge and understanding of the literature that has sought to define or has emerged from 'America'.

Why study the MA Literary Studies: American Literature pathway at Goldsmiths? - You'll be engaged in a rigorous study of American literary criticism and theory. You'll read a variety of nineteenth- and twentieth-century American literature and assess how American critical and theoretical conceptions shape American literature, producing different “Americas”.

  • In particular, you'll study some of the ways in which nineteenth- and twentieth-century American literature sought to understand the nation in the face of the fragmenting effects of modernity and postmodernity.

  • While the compulsory module gives you a strong grounding in this field, the flexible structure of the MA will offer you the opportunity to pursue your wider interests by studying three options from the large provision of the department, choosing at least one of these in an area that is relevant to the literature and culture of the Americas.

  • You will be able to further develop your interest in American literature and culture through a 15,000-word dissertation to be submitted at the end of your programme of study.
