  1. MA in English: Literature and Psychoanalysis


This pathway explores some of the classic texts of the psychoanalytic tradition, both the conceptual foundations elaborated in its metapsychology and the internal critiques and debates that surround it, together with some of the classical clinical case studies. Unlike academic psychology courses it will do this through an historical and textual approach. Students will be encourages to develop both a detailed, empirical knowledge of the main texts of Freudian metapsychology and as well a ‘symptomatic’ and literary mode of reading them as complex textual objects – as Freud himself reads dreams – whose rhetorical presentation, recurrent metaphors, repetitions and displacements betray their underlying problems and impasses as much as their official themes. Attention will be paid particularly to psychoanalytic models of textuality, fantasy and desire.

6. MA in English: Poetry and Poetics Pathway
This pathway is designed to provide a basis for students interested in focusing on poetry and poetics at graduate level, both as a stand-alone MA and as a preparation for doctoral studies in poetry. Taking its cue from recent developments in critical approaches to poetry, prosody, form and aesthetics, the pathway allows students to draw on the range of expertise in poetry across the department and Faculty of Arts. All students enrolled on this pathway must take the foundation module EN973 ‘Poetry and Poetics’, which guides students through major debates in poetry and poetics from the late eighteenth century to the present day, including theories of close listening/reading, music and poetry, poethics, theopoetics, poeticotherapy, and ecopoetics.

Structure

Full-time students follow one of three routes:

(1) Poetry and Poetics foundation module (36 CATS) + Introduction to Research Methods (compulsory for all MA pathways) + Optional modules x 4 (36 CATS x 4)

(2) Poetry and Poetics foundation module (36 CATS) + Introduction to Research Methods (compulsory for all MA pathways) + Optional modules x 2 (36 CATS x 2) + Dissertation (72 CATS)

(3) Poetry and Poetics foundation module (30 CATS) + Introduction to Research Methods (compulsory for all MA pathways) + Optional modules x 3 (30 CATS x 3) + Dissertation (60 CATS)

Part-time students follow the pathway over two years:

Year one: Poetry and Poetics foundation module + Introduction to Research Methods + 2 optional modules

Year two: Dissertation OR 2 optional modules

Modules

You must take the EN973 Poetry and Poetics foundation module. You are then free to choose any modules from the Department’s list of MA options or from outside of the department, as long as you can show a focus on poetry in your written work. Recommended modules include:

3. Foundation Module


The Foundation module aims to give MA students orientation in critical theory as well as training in research tools. The Foundation Module is compulsory for all MA students.


The Foundation module consists of two distinct elements:


Introduction to Research Methods, a four-week intensive module focusing on how to conduct research at Warwick, assessed by a short bibliography exercise.


And


Critical Theory, a term-length module, assessed by a 6000-word essay.


Both elements of the module are compulsory.


Introduction to Research Methods (convened by Dr Rochelle Sibley)


This module introduces students to the basic issues and procedures of literary research, including electronic resources. The Academic Writing Programme offers guidance for MA students on structuring their research, engaging critically with secondary material and planning their dissertation or Long Project. The first seminar (term 1, week 2) will discuss the structure of the dissertation or Long Project, including how to construct a bibliography, and how to establish good writing practice. The second session (term 1, week 5) will focus on research methods and how to demonstrate critical engagement. Sessions are conducted by English Department staff members and by the subject librarian, Mr Peter Larkin.

The seminars will take place in weeks 2-5 of the autumn term. All sessions are on Wednesday afternoons from 1.00-3.00. Full details and venues will available on-line at the beginning of the year. Note that the week 2 and 3 meetings will take place in the Library Training Room (Floor 2). You are asked to complete online training tutorials before each library session using the link below which will be updated over the summer -

http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/services/library/main/tealea/arts/engcomplitstudies/training/


Week 2: Bibliography, Style and the Book – Dr Rochelle Sibley (Room F107 – Engineering Block)

Week 3: Resources in Research (i) – Mr. Peter Larkin

Week 4: Resources in Research (ii) – Mr. Peter Larkin

Week 5: How to demonstrate Critical Engagement – Dr Rochelle Sibley (Room F107)


Assessment

Students will be required to complete a short two-part exercise. Part I will consist of a bibliographical exercise, and Part II of a number of advanced electronic search exercises. Both must be submitted to the English Graduate Secretary by 12 noon on Monday, Week 6. The exercise is marked as Pass/Fail. If you receive a Fail, you will receive appropriate feedback and will be required to resubmit. The award of an MA is contingent upon successful completion of the assessment for this module.
