Important Information

Whilst the University will make every effort to offer the modules listed, changes may sometimes be made arising from the annual monitoring, review and update of modules. Where this activity leads to significant (but not minor) changes to programmes and their constituent modules, the University will endeavour to consult with students and others. It is also possible that the University may not be able to offer a module for reasons outside of its control, such as the illness of a member of staff. In some cases optional modules can have limited places available and so you may be asked to make additional module choices in the event you do not gain a place on your first choice. Where this is the case, the University will inform students.

Throughout history and into today’s world, literature has been censored, employed as government propaganda, and used for political protest. The same is true for culture more broadly – think of the way music, film, television and digital media have also been used to support campaigns or to exercise power. The links between culture, literature and politics do not end with these examples. Literature often reflects and incorporates world events; it comments on the way we live. In turn, cultural policy and other aspects of government activity create the conditions in which literature is written, published and read. This distinctive course allows you to bring together the different worlds of culture, literature and politics, and to study them separately and together. It enables you to learn about politics and about literature, but also to explore the connections between the two.
