Blake & the Age of Revolution: MA in English & History of Art

Convenor: Michael Phillips

“The Centre for Eighteenth Century Studies, in the historic King’s Manor in the city of York, is offering this new oneyear MA program featuring a core course on William Blake which also incorporates an introduction to the major archives in Great Britain for primary research in the eighteenth century. A wide selection of optional courses in the long eighteenth century is also offered to supplement this new MA. The program is also available over two years to parttime students.

“Blake is the central figure of the core course, as poet, painter and printmaker and as publisher of his own works. In this regard emphasis is upon the immediate cultural and historical circumstances that affected the creation and publication of his works. This includes study of the response in Britain to the French Revolution and its aftermath, especially the era of the anti-Jacobin Terror and the crisis it occasioned in the history of civil liberty.

“A feature of this new MA is its introduction to the principal archives in Britain for original research in the eighteenth century including collections of Blake and his contemporaries. Time will also be spent in a printmaking studio to see and practice first hand how Blake’s works were produced.

“For a brochure and full descriptions of the Centre’s MA and doctoral programs, write or email Clare Bond at The Centre for Eighteenth Century Studies, University of York, The King’s Manor, York Y01 7EP, England; email Our website, gives full details about the course, the University and the city of York.”
