In the Queering Modernism course offered by University of Oxford we approach the topic from a variety of angles, asking what it might mean to ‘queer’ Modernism, and what the consequences of this might be for our readings of, and approaches to, Modernist texts.


What you will study

Is literary Modernism, by virtue of its subversion, its rebelliousness, inherently ‘queer’, or is Modernism instead restrained by political, ethical or religious conservatism?

The Queering Modernism course offered by University of Oxford will discuss works by H.D., Radclyffe Hall, Hope Mirlees, and Virginia Woolf against a wider literary Modernist landscape: one that takes in canonical and non-canonical writers; Britain and America; and topics including biography, sexuality and gender. Nearly 100 years on from the publication of Radclyffe Hall’s The Well of Loneliness and Woolf’s Orlando, we will consider how far debates have moved on concerning the ways in which we consider and define the ‘queer’ within our reading, and understanding, of literature and literary history.

  • Queering Modernism with Radclyffe Hall
