English Studies: Contemporary Writing MA Queen Mary University of London

The newly designed MA English Literature: Contemporary Writing pathway offers you the opportunity to engage with American, British, Irish, and world Anglophone literary cultures. The pathway brings together a variety of genres and critical approaches to contemporary literature, such that you will have the chance to explore fiction, poetry, and life writing, as well as debates in cultural theory and philosophy about the very nature and periodization of contemporaneity.

We are home to one of the largest and most diverse groups of staff in this field of any department in the country, and expertise in late-twentieth- and twenty-first-century culture brings together perspectives that are regional and transnational, theoretical and historicist. The pathway will also give you the opportunity of working with our leading postcolonial scholars, and to think about contemporary cultural production in global contexts of reception. The pathway as whole thus facilitates a twin focus on the notions of writing and the present, encouraging you to examine the most urgent intellectual issues of our time that relate to the notion of ‘the contemporary’.

Aims

On this pathway you will:

  • Explore the evolving intellectual and political contexts for the study of contemporary literature and culture
  • Examine contemporary debates in literary theory and cultural studies about the changing nature of writing
  • Gain more understanding of how technology, new media forms, and the emergence of digital culture have informed contemporary modes of literary production and reception
  • Acquire critical vocabularies for thinking about time, epochal temporality and questions of periodization
  • Develop new skills in argumentation, analysis, and independent inquiry.
