"This module is taken by all the students on the MA in Writing in the Modern Age. It is designed to focus more continuously on the concepts of modernity and post-modernity that other modules in this MA will bear in mind, but perhaps refract in more specialised ways. It will endeavour to equip students with basic theories and reading techniques for understanding modernist and post-modernist texts taken from a variety of different discourses - literary, philosophical, and political. The class should provide a forum for essential introductory discussion of the subject matter of the degree and its appropriate treatment. Questions concerning expectations and standards of the work required by this MA will be answered both theoretically and practically in the module of seminar presentation and discussion."
