MPhil in European, Latin American and Comparative Literatures and Cultures

Detail from Drago by Xul Solar

The MPhil in European, Latin American and Comparative Literatures and Cultures (ELAC) provides you with the critical and theoretical tools to enable you to undertake in-depth study of specific aspects of European literature and culture and/or Latin American and Francophone contexts. It introduces you to a broad range of critical theory concepts and includes the writing of a thesis based on original research. You take three taught courses consisting of lectures and seminars, one of which is a core course in critical theory.

The course has a Medieval and Early Modern Pathway for students who wish to specialize in subjects linked to Medieval and/or Early Modern studies. There is also a Latin American Pathway: two modules run in conjunction with the MPhil in Latin American Studies, one of which is a module on Latin American Film. It is also possible to borrow modules from the MPhil in Screen Media and Cultures, and the MPhil in English Studies: Criticism and Culture, run by the Faculty of English.

Generally, students receive, over the academic year, 40 hours of seminars, 16 hours of lecture classes, and 6 hours of one-to-one supervision.
