15 Credits SPRING

Aims/Description: This module allows students to develop knowledge and understanding of a particular topic or area of French and francophone studies relevent to their MA programme. The student will pursue a course of directed reading on a themed topic which will be supported by an individual member of staff, based on his or her own research expertise; participating staff offer topics in advance for students to choose. The directed reading will address key texts, concepts, methodologies and examples from the topic. This will then provide a basis for further specific and targeted reading, agreed in negotiation with the tutor, as the unit progresses.
