Sample Titles 2019-20 T1

EN378 SAMPLE ESSAY TITLES 2019-20 TERM ONE

Note that these are just illustrative examples – we expect that you will choose your own title (though you can use one of these if you like). (Nor do you have to use that ‘…in…’ structure – a simple summary would do – ‘Burgess’s violence’ for example). There is no longer a requirement to have titles okayed by seminar tutor/ module convenor.

 

Discuss at least one set text from term one, and any other texts you like, whether on the module or not. You might choose to base an essay around two or even three set texts.
