    STUDIA PHILOLOGIA - Issue no. 2 / 2000  
  Article:   FOREWORD.

  Abstract:  It is with considerable pleasure that I find myself in the position of writing a few words to introduce this volume on British Cultural Studies written by lecturers on the MA in British Cultural Studies at the Babes-Bolyai University in Cluj-Napoca, Romania. It is only since the beginning of the 1990s that the British and the British Council began to develop the area of “British Cultural Studies”. Romania was one of the countries where this development was most enthusiastically taken up and the Babes-Bolyai University in Cluj-Napoca was the first to establish a separate MA in British Cultural Studies. The British Council worked closely in partnership with the Cluj team to prepare the programme. Following a 10-week course in Warwick University in 1993, the first cohort of students joined the programme in September 1994. Nigel Townson, the British Council’s adviser in British Cultural Studies based in Cluj-Napoca helped the team to develop new approaches to writing the curriculum and a new student-centred model of teaching. A modest library of books was donated by the British Council.
