Studying English at SOAS offers an exciting approach that brings new voices and a global discipline to our specialist institution. Building on existing strengths and expertise in literatures, languages and linguistics from around the world, English at SOAS also looks to its own location and literary heritage in the heart of Bloomsbury. From our position in the ‘North’ and particularly London, we are interested in the ways in which English in all its variations as a field of literary study has long been in dialogue with its neighbours in the northern hemisphere and across the Global South. Our vision is an interrogative one cutting edge, deeply committed to interdisciplinary research and teaching across the humanities, and engaged with metropolitan, cosmopolitan and island histories. English at SOAS is truly international and the first degree of its kind in the UK.
