Literature & Publishing

This long-established and perennially popular MA remains Ireland’s only postgraduate programme dedicated to literature and publishing. It is a distinctive offering that explores the interfaces between writing and the marketplace, between literature and transmission, and between the aesthetic and material aspects of texts. Students deepen their existing knowledge of literature while also developing new competencies in areas such as marketing, the practical elements of editorial and production work, and the business aspects of contemporary publishing. This MA not only strengthens academic skills in literary analysis and research, it also places a strong emphasis on preparation for the professional world. Students register for the core modules Contemporary Publishing and Publishing: Perspectives and Professionalisation, and they can select from a variety of optional modules such as Copy-editing and Proofreading, Book History, Introduction to Business, Representations of the Book in Literature and Film, Introduction to Digital Humanities, Media and Marketing Communications, Literature and Colonialism, Medieval Aesthetics and Poetic Art, or Literature of North America. In the programme’s final summer months, all students complete either a portfolio project or a research dissertation.
