School:University of East Anglia
Faculty:Arts and Humanities / Art, Media and American Studies
Field of Study:American Literature
English Language and Literature, General
Description:Study two of the world?s greatest literary traditions side by side. Explore the development and growth of American literature from its earliest moments through to the present day. Learn what makes American literature distinctive, and how Americans have found new ways to express their diverse identities, defining their nation in the process. At the same time, you will also explore the rich heritage of English literature, discovering the wealth of literature in English, reaching back to Chaucer, Julian of Norwich and beyond, and forwards to the likes of Kazuo Ishiguro, Ian McEwan and Ali Smith. By studying these profoundly important literary histories together, you will develop a unique understanding of the transatlantic relationship, and the way that American and English literature have developed in close conversation with each other.

As well as exploring literature from a global perspective and investigating a wide range of genres ? novels, poetry, film, and even comic books ? you will get to grips with issues relating to race, gender and civil liberties in America and see how authors have documented the ?American experience? at the same time as they offered up cultural critiques of American power. In doing so, you will gain an understanding of the major cultural and historical ideas that have shaped American literature from the pre-colonial era to the present day.
