English: English Literature, Literary Criticism and Theory
The two 7.5-credit modules “English Literature and Literary Criticism” and “Literary Theory” are integrated for teaching purposes, though each is examined separately. The integrated course is an introduction to major theories in current literary scholarship. There are four major areas, with three theories represented in each: history, text, subjectivity, and culture in a broad sense. The theories are studied in relation to literary texts selected from various periods and genres.
