25 Nov Trent University English (Public Texts) Graduate Program M.A.
In the Public Texts M.A. program at Trent University, we explore what it means to “go public” — to “publish” — and how that act resonates in the political, economic, and aesthetic spheres. Our students will develop new ways of looking at the production of texts, their circulation, and the relationship between texts and their publics, exploring issues which are emerging as central to literary research in the twenty-first century.
Preparation for the future
Our program prepares our graduates for further study in a range of doctoral programs directly and indirectly related to the field of Public Texts. These include both traditional programs in English Literature and newly emerging programs in the History of the Book, Publishing and Print Culture. In addition, all of our students — especially those who take the Internship option — will benefit from the opportunity to develop professional skills applicable to fields such as publishing, editing, communications, journalism, information science and archival work.
