ENGL6103 - Approaches to Global English Literatures

Semester 1, 2017  |  Credit Points: 6

Coordinator: Paul Giles


This is a core unit for the Master of English Studies. Students will familiarise themselves with critical approaches to a range of literary works written throughout the world in the English language, and they will critically examine ways in which theories of globalisation and place have come to inflect paradigms of local and national identity. Students will evaluate contemporary understandings of the meaning and significance of "English" literature in a new global environment.
