Class Aims: This class aims to introduce students to what is perhaps the most important pioneering phase in the 'discovery' and representation of British landscapes and locations.

Teaching and Learning: The class is seminar-based: students will be expected to deliver one un-assessed presentation to the class during the semester and should ensure they have made adequate preparation for all seminars.
Assessment: one 3,000 word essay based on material covered in class and independent study, addressing a question to be agreed between student and tutor; the essay should be submitted by [to be confirmed]. For the style guide of the Modern Languages Association, click here
