Abstract This lecture course will provide a survey of nineteenth century British literature and culture. It will address cultural phenomena, objects, fashions, innovations, ideologies in the nineteenth century as much as traditions, musical and visual culture(s), and literary texts, covering a whole range of topics from the theatre, industrialisation (as depicted in novels), and gender to London as a metropolis. Our method will be to focus, as a rule, on one cultural phenomenon or literary text each week that will be discussed with a view to establishing their very own character as well as its wider contexts (both literary and cultural, i.e. including stylistic, generic, historical as well as social, political, philosophical, religious aspects). The lecture course is open to beginners who look for an introduction to this period in English literature and culture as well as to more advanced students who consider choosing the 19th century as an exam topic. Credit can be earned both for literary and cultural studies. For the exams, students will have to have read (at least) four of the works discussed.
