Reading Across Cultures


Description

This course aims to acquaint students with the broad range of comparative approaches and strategies available to the literary scholar who is willing to think outside a narrowly monocultural and monolingual perspective, and to adopt a cosmopolitan openness to reading works from other cultures. Current approaches to, and theories of, literary production are reviewed systematically, in such a way as to reinforce students’ existing knowledge and lead them into previously unfamiliar areas. Tests the potential and limits of current theories of literature on short works selected from many cultures and periods. Designed for students studying literature as part of a BA(Hons) or MA in any language and literature subject.
