Spotlight on a course: Critical Approaches to Literature and Culture

In this core course all students will present their own areas of specialisation, i.e. their own research strategies, theoretical approaches and current work in progress. The emphasis of the course is on methodology. Hence the central aim of this course is to enable you to conduct the independent research required for writing a Master's thesis. You will complete set writing assignments, give a conference presentation, and take the first steps towards the completion of your thesis project.

What interests me in the study of literature is the relation between patterns of thought and the products of the aesthetic imagination – literary writing and the visual arts most especially – in which these thought patterns seem to materialise. A work of art obliges the artist to make formal aesthetic and/or linguistic choices. What constrains these choices, what makes them possible, and what ethical and political forces might these decisions bring to bear on the social interactions that arise between writer and reader, speaker and listener, artist and viewer? It is this relation between literature, ethics and politics that we investigate in the Master's in English Literature and Culture. Dr Rudolph Glitz
