University of Roehampton: Popular Literature and Culture

Institution University of Roehampton
Department English and Creative Writing
Telephone 020 8392 3232
Study type Taught


*Our MA Popular Literature and Culture is the first in the country to take a period-based, interdisciplinary approach to popular literary and cultural forms. The programme spans a number of diverse disciplines such as English literature, cultural studies, film and television studies, race studies, gender and sexuality studies, history, environmental studies, and philosophy, delving into different time periods and exploring thematic topics within them. * The programme encompasses multiple periods of popular culture – from the medieval and the early modern periods, the Victorian and Edwardian ages, and 20th century and contemporary cultures. You will be taught by staff from across the disciplines, whose expertise lies not only in the form being taught but also the textual culture of that specific period. All of the staff members who will teach you are active researchers in their field and will use that research to inform their teaching, offering you innovative modules that are fresh, exciting, and contemporary.

You will also benefit from specialist masterclasses with authors of popular fiction - such as Anthony Horowitz, one of our Honorary Professors - and you will be welcomed into a thriving and social academic community at Roehampton.
