The Victorian period is often regarded as a high point in literary history, generating a wealth of material that is still regarded as canonical as well as a diverse range of literary genres. This period, which encompasses the reign of Queen Victoria from 1837 to 1901, produced a large number of prominent authors.
International relations refers to the study of foreign affairs and political interaction between states. Research and scholarship in this area has an important impact our understanding of the past and current events.
The field of Medieval Studies explores European and Mediterranean civilization from the 4th to the 15th centuries. This period, which has a critical importance for the understanding of Western culture, can best be approached through a combination of several disciplines from history to English literature. As such, it is constantly responding to the emergence of new interpretations and ideas for scholars to consider.
