The unit approaches literature and literary study as important pathways to unlocking our identities and understanding our lives, affirming the potential for transformation of the self that literary texts and study offer.
Set texts, which pair Australian and international fictions, include Christopher Nolan's Memento, J.M. Coetzee's Disgrace, Steven Spielberg's AI: Artificial Intelligence and Jeanette Winterson's Oranges are Not the Only Fruit.
