20 Credits SPRING

Pre-requisites: LIT301

Aims/Description: This module is about a variety of texts and genres from 1945 onwards. In this period the 'canon' is unfixed and contentious, and the syllabus reflects this. Students will also be encouraged to bring to their study of the texts a consideration of literary theory and literary movements, including gender studies, post-colonialism and post-modernism.
