Hi everyone! This thread is a continuation of last year's and is for anyone applying for a postgraduate English Literature course this year. There seem to be a few of us hanging around for decisions currently so it may be good to get a thread going!

To get underway, let us know what course(s) you're applying for and what book you're reading at the moment!

Hi there! Applied for a PhD in English, focus on modern postcolonial lit for me. Currently reading a LOT of trash novels while writing my master’s dissertation. Wishing everyone the best of luck!

Hi all,

I'm applying for the MPhil English Studies: Modern and Contemporary Literature; has anybody else applying/applied to this programme?

I'm reading Jane Eyre (albeit re-reading it for my dissertation) and Hanif Kureishi's The Buddha of Suburbia at the moment.

What are the topics of everybody's research proposals btw?

Oh nice, I’ve had Kureishi somewhere in my to-be-read pile for a while!

I’d like to keep my PhD proposal close to my chest for privacy purposes, but it’s focused on diasporic Anglophone literatures

Have you applied yet/made progress on your application?

PhD Eng here too! Moved to “under review by department”, though appaz that doesn’t mean anything...
