ENGL1026 - Constructing the Fictive Self

Semester 1, 2012  |  Credit Points: 6

Coordinator: Dr Victoria Burrows


What makes the subject of identity so compelling? How are we ourselves involved in the construction of such identity?
This unit explores the topic of self in a range of texts, both literary and filmic. It will provide an opportunity for students to analyse and interrogate the construction of self in a variety of social contexts by focusing on textual representations of sexuality, race and gender in ways that are relevant to being and living in today's world.
