  • The Shock of the New: Modernism and Literature
    This course will explore the theory and practice of literary modernism in Britain and Ireland through the study of three exemplary texts: James Joyce’s Dubliners (1914), T.S. Eliot’s The Waste Land (1922), and Virginia Woolf’s Mrs Dalloway (1925).
  • Jane Austen (Online)
    Many readers enjoy Austen’s novels but cannot define the qualities that make them so special and enduring. This course will help you to analyse Austen’s style and techniques, and will enhance your understanding and enjoyment of reading them.
  • Jane Austen’s People in their Places: ‘Northanger Abbey’ and ‘Mansfield Park’
    Does place matter? Austen names two of her novels after locations. This course will examine the significance of location in her novels, but will also consider 'place' in the sense of how her characters are placed in relation to their society.
