History and English

This course encourages students to think critically about how we define ‘history’ and ‘literature’ and about how the two disciplines interrelate and in large measure overlap. Close attention is given to changing methodologies, to the nature of evidence and to the style of argument. Oxford possesses outstanding provision for both subjects, in both the Bodleian Library and in the History and English faculty libraries.
