  • Overview

    Building on literary skills which students have acquired through study at Level 1, this course will focus on various literary and cinematic depictions of the human search for identity and the meaning of self through a series of challenging texts and films from a variety of cultures.
    By the end of this course students will be able to:
    ? demonstrate an ability to analyse unfamiliar and culturally-different texts;
    ? demonstrate an in-depth understanding of various texts in their historical, cultural and intellectual contexts, and highlight significant affinities and differences between them;
    ? write and argue cogently about selected issues/themes without losing sight of a more general, unified framework.
