Dear University of Manchester,

Please can you tell me if trigger warnings for graphic/potentially upsetting content are giving to students on English literature courses before lectures/exams?

If so, can you tell me the wordings of the warnings and to which books/plays etc they are attached?

Eg: Titus Andronicus contains references to rape.

Yours faithfully,

Mark Spaven
