The course examines a range of US literary and historical contexts, introducing ways in which the production of an idea of 'America' is variously achieved and contested between 1776 and the present. It asks students to consider the ways in which key texts - literary, cultural, political and philosophical - have contributed to the development, interrogation and revision of notions of American identity and culture. A particular focus is on the relationship of literature and criticism to problems of national historiography.
Students who successfully complete this programme will gain:
* a detailed knowledge of a range of literary writing that responds to and informs concepts of American identity;
* an understanding of the role of political and ideological structures in the production of national historiographies;
* a grounding in the research methods of literary studies.
Students take two courses per semester, one core and one chosen from a range of options, each consisting of a weekly two hour seminar. Research skills are taught by a combination of staff presentations and workshops. Students consult individually with supervisors during the early stages of their research project.
