سادساً: توصيف المقررات

  • · AA810:  Postgraduate Foundation Module in Literature [Credit hours: 16]

As well as basic research techniques, including the use of computers to locate materials, you will be introduced to the study of books as material objects and the work of editors of literary texts. You will explore a range of recent theoretical approaches to the study of literature, and how these bear on literary research. You will reinforce your understanding through exercises and apply what you have learned in a case study of fiction from the period 1880–1930. This will include novels by Defoe, Gissing, Bronte, Conrad and Woolf. What you will learn in this course will equip you for postgraduate study in literature.

The course has three main parts. During the first eight weeks it introduces some ‘research tools ’, including how to use a research library and various aids to research, such as bibliographies, periodical indexes and microform publications. It also covers:

  • some ways in which computers can aid literary research, and how to search for material on the internet;
  • the work of textual and bibliographical scholars who study books as material objects: their physical make-up, developments in printing, publishing, distribution and readership;
  • the practical and theoretical problems that textual editors face in their efforts to produce reliable texts of literary works.

In the next eight weeks you will turn your   attention to a study of the history and development of literary criticism during the first half of the twentieth century, looking in particular at recent theoretical approaches including feminist theory, deconstruction, reader-response and reception theory, new historicism and post-colonial theory.

In the last sixteen weeks you will work in detail on a single area of literature: the novel in English from 1880 to 1930. You will study five novels, each significant in its own right and together providing an overview of some of the main developments in this transitional period as the ‘late Victorians’ gave way to the ‘Moderns’.

 

  • · A813: Literature in Context [Credit hours: 16; Pre-requisite: AA810]

This course is built round the study of a series of set texts by authors ranging from Jane Austen, to E. M. Forster to R. K. Narayan. You will study them as literary texts, but will also be encouraged to see them in the context of wider questions to do with the formation of nations and national identities. The key question is, ‘How have literature and literary texts been involved with what we refer to as “nation” in Britain and India over the last two hundred years?’ More detailed questions include, for example, ‘How does this text (Waiting for the Mahatma, say) represent the people of a nation to themselves?’, ‘How does a text (A Passage to India, say) produced in one nation represent the people of another nation, and why?’, and ‘Does literature as part of a formal education have a public and even institutional role in the development of national identity?’

Raising these questions in relation to literature from Britain and India enables us also to think about encounters between the two cultures and the complex, varying fortunes of the British Empire as they were experienced in India and in Britain. Can we, for example, see a relationship between the Sepoy Rising of 1857 and A Tale of Two Cities, published in 1859? Did ‘cultural’ independence come for India in 1947 along with political independence?

Each set text is used to introduce a particular theme. The themes are arranged in a broadly historical sequence.

The course as a whole gets you to engage with the recent rich work in literary criticism.

  • · A817: The Literature Dissertation [Points: 60/Credit hours 16; Duration: 1 year Pre-requisite A813]

The literature dissertation will be between 16,000-18,000 words in length. You are not expected to produce an original contribution to scholarly knowledge (originality of that kind is a requirement for a PhD), but you   will be expected to undertake a survey of the relevant primary and secondary sources and to be up to date as far as possible with recent journal articles on your chosen subject. Your dissertation must be well written and must show that you are confident in creating the scholarly apparatus necessary to support your   argument.

Your research will be supervised by faculty members, who will help you in deciding on the focus of your dissertation, approve your research proposal and comment on draft sections of your work throughout.
