ENGL3655 - The Literary in Theory
Semester 2, 2011 | Credit Points: 6
Coordinator: Melissa Hardie
This unit will introduce students to significant movements in modern and contemporary literary theory to think about what It means to speak of the literary. The unit of study begins by examining the question of "literariness" through its exposition and defence by number of scholars. We will pursue the applications of their arguments through selection of theoretical models, including queer and gender theory, psychoanalysis, and race theory, to consider the cultural and ideological work imaginative literature undertakes.
