English Literature Section

The section organizes courses for: the BA Programme (lectures and compulsory seminars on English literature). It is partly responsible for the special programme in British Literature and Commonwealth Cultural Studies (see the MA programme requirements), the PhD Programme; and the supervision of BA, MA and PhD theses.

Martin Procházka and Ondřej Pilný, 2005), translations and editions of major authors (Martin Hilský’s translation of all Shakespeare’s plays and the Sonnets, and above all his annotated dual-language editions of Shakespeare’s major plays; Jan Čermák’s first Czech translation and edition of Beowulf), and the organization of international conferences: Byron: East and West (1998); Myths, Foundation Texts and Imagined Communities (2004), Robert Burns in Global Culture (2009); 9th World Shakespeare Congress (2011).
