Course Content

Optional courses

The study option essay may be taken in subject areas offered by contributing departments following consultation with the MLitt convener and the potential supervisor just before the semester break. The research for the study option essay is conducted in the second semester and is combined with an oral presentation element for which practice and training is provided.

We can offer expert supervision in a very wide range of subjects. To illustrate this, we have included a selection of essay and dissertation titles from past years’ intake:

  • “Th’end is every tales strengthe”: unfinished narrative in Chaucer’sCanterbury Tales
  • A Lacanian approach to medieval masculinity
  • A study of court life in Béroul’s Tristan et Iseut and Walter Map’s De Nugis Curialum
  • Allusion to illusion: discerning emblems in Marlowe’s The Jew of Malta
  • An analysis of Carolingian and Ottonian relations with the Church
  • An analysis of Dhuoda’s Liber manualis in relation to religion, education, and aristrocratic family roles in Carolingian Europe
  • Developments in Old English textbook production and their influence on student learners
