Below are a selection of courses that we are running, based on the subject of the course you were looking for:

  • Jane Austen`s Emma
    Despite being published 200 years ago, Jane Austen’s Emma remains in print, on screen, and online. This day school considers the qualities that have made the story of a heroine whom Austen expected no one but herself to like enduringly popular.
  • Brontes (Online)
    How did three sisters living apparently secluded, eventless lives write such original, passionate and dramatic novels and poetry? Who were the Brontës, what fed their imaginations, and what makes their writing so haunting and intense?
  • The Modern American Novel: An Introduction (Online)
    Some of the most wonderful fiction in English is by American writers. In this course we shall study five key novels of the twentieth century  by Fitzgerald, Faulkner, Silko, Morrison and Roth.
  • Jane Austen (Online)
    Many readers enjoy Austens novels but cannot define the qualities that make them so special and enduring. This course will help you to analyse Austens style and techniques, and will enhance your understanding and enjoyment of reading them.
  • Smithsonian Seminar 2016
    The Oxford University Department for Continuing Education has arranged a summer seminar to be held at Merton College, Oxford, in collaboration with Smithsonian Journeys.
