About

The DPhil in Literature and Arts at the University of Oxford is a part-time doctorate in the Humanities offered by the Department for Continuing Education, focusing on a subject in British cultural history, which falls between the 15th and 20th centuries.

Overview

The research students on this Literature and Arts course at the University of Oxford carry out independent doctoral research on a subject linked to the British past, c.1450- c.1914.

Features

Students work in at least two of the disciplines and are supervised by academics with two different areas of specialism.

The course enables students to make the most of the university's resources (e.g. its libraries, computer facilities, museums and historic monuments).

Students are also likely to need to consult archives and other primary sources in different locations depending on their project.

Programme Structure

Research:

  • British history is interpreted in the broadest possible sense to include global and imperial connections.
  • For instance, the formation of British culture through the stimuli of influences beyond Europe, from Chinese porcelain to commodities like sugar and tea.
  • Research proposals are welcome across the period, from, for example, Tudor and Jacobean Art and Architecture to the changing place of women in early twentieth century Britain.
