CfP: I SEDERI International Conference for Junior Researchers

University of Murcia, 9-11 October 2019





(Specializace Anglická literatura)

Director: Prof.PhDr. Martin Procházka, CSc.

This programme suggests new approaches to literature formed by recent trends in literary scholarship. It combines a sense of literary history with the values and ideas of the present. The range of subjects covered in the programme reflects the broad research interests of the lecturers. There are seminars devoted to virtually the entire scope of English literature. Compulsory basic courses, focusing on early modern drama, Romanticism and Victorian literature, are supplemented by elective and extension courses on English medieval literature, Restoration and the 18th century literature, Modernism and post-World War II developments in poetry and drama. Unique features of this programme are courses allowing students to read Old and Middle English texts in the original language.

In the new Anglophone Literatures and Cultures MA study (since 2013), the programme consists of 4 basic and 4 elective courses for single-subject students. In addition, 6 courses can be taken from other special programmes. Two-subject students have to take 2 basic and 3 elective courses plus 1 course from another special programme.  Basic courses are offered each academic year (either in the winter or summer semester). The offer of elective and extension courses varies each academic year.

The final special programme examination mandatory for students who began studies before 2013 takes the form of a review of the results in individual special programme courses done on the basis of brief reports containing graded assessments of students’ performance in the course. These reports must be submitted to the director of the programme by instructors of individual courses.

A detailed description of the MA programme requirements: till 2013 and from 2013.
