Our MA specialization reflects the shared Print Culture approaches of faculty working in a range of literary and theoretical fields. We conduct research and teach graduate courses that attend closely to the material and technological aspects of literary history and culture, including the production, dissemination and reception of oral, manuscript, print and new media forms. The Print Culture program brings together scholars working in cultural materialism, book history and manuscript and print culture, as well as studies in media, gender, post-colonialism, intellectual property and globalization, offering graduate students a unique opportunity to pursue specialized research in a growing interdisciplinary field.

The Print Culture faculty has considerable expertise in British and North American literature and culture, both historical and contemporary.
