Postgraduate Coursework Units of Study
ENGL6107 - Sentiment and Sensation
Semester 1, 2014 | Credit Points: 6
Coordinator: Assoc Prof Vanessa Smith
This unit will focus on the narrative and rhetorical strategies used to depict and engage emotion. It will examine the ways in which feeling is both conceptualised and motivated in literary texts, and relate developments in the fictional understanding of emotion to those in philosophy and the natural sciences. It will ask whether emotion can be historicised; how affective responses are engaged in the service of ethical agendas; to what extent do the feelings produced by fiction elude narrative control.
