Literary Studies - unit set code MJ-A000013

The Literary Studies major sequence is interdisciplinary and theoretical in orientation. The units focus attention on literary texts in the contexts of their production and reception. Insights from anthropology, philosophy, psychology, history and linguistics form part of this process. There are opportunities for creative writing alongside critical analysis. Texts studied range from classical Greek drama and Shakespearian plays to recent world fiction and poetry.

On successful completion of the Literary Studies major sequence, students should have the following discipline-specific skills:

  • an informed ability to read texts of a wide variety
  • an ability to write creatively as an extension of literary studies texts
  • an ability to conduct a comparative analysis of text/culture relationships
  • an ability to explain the intercultural and cross-cultural forces in human society and history in so far as they are reflected in literature
  • an ability to understand and apply methodologies of contemporary literary criticism and theory
  • an ability to critically appreciate the nature of disciplinary knowledge in Literary Studies
  • an ability to reflect upon different theoretical positions in relation to literary and non-literary texts.
