Although in the public playhouses of Shakespeare’s time female roles were played by boys, awareness is growing of the participation of women themselves in early modern drama. Much of this took place at great country houses like Knole in Kent, home of Lady Anne Clifford. Come and hear lecturers from University College London explore Clifford's connection with Samuel Daniel's Tragedie of Cleopatra, while actors recreate scenes from the play.
All assessed work at MA level is double marked by two members of staff. In addition, an external examiner reviews the marking process and scrutinizes a selection of assessed coursework and dissertations. The Board of Examiners meets in late October or early November to decide the final awards.
Submissions deadlines for assessed work and means of submission will vary slightly
across different departments, so please check with the relevant course
tutor or postgraduate administrator to see when your coursework essays
are due. The Early Modern
Studies programme follows the deadlines set
in the School of European Languages, Cultures and Society.
Details on marking criteria, penalties for late submission, plagiarism and the scheme of award are all available in the:
