My Teaching

In 2010-2011 I am teaching on the First Year Core Module 'Modes of Reading' (EN122) in the Department of English and Comparative Literary Studies


Modes of Reading Overview:

This module offers an introduction to the practices of criticism. Form, genre and literary inheritance will be among the topics addressed. The module aims to enable students to work with a variety of critical approaches, and to develop an informed awareness of the possibilities available to them as readers and critics. Thematically organised lectures provide a frame of cultural reference on which the students will draw in their close reading in their seminars. The module is taught in four units: (1) Speaking with others; (2) Shocks and sympathies; (3) Nation, culture, place; (4) The angel of history.
