Units of Study
ENGL3615 - Street Narratives
Semester 2, 2014 | Credit Points: 6
Coordinator: Dr Rebecca Johinke
This unit will map the movement of the drivers, passengers, and pedestrians who patrol our streets, pages, and screens. It has a particular focus on the flâneur. Starting with writers such as Poe, Dickens, and Baudelaire, students will reconfigure the streets as rhetorical spaces and consider how authors, artists and filmmakers use urban streetscapes as sites to construct representations of class, gender, race, sanity and sexuality. Students will reconsider concepts of authorship and interrogate different kinds of texts.
