There is a large literature on and by these authors and you are advised to do some background reading for each week in order to contextualise the text. We can advise you on the relevant literature. Please be advised that this module will only run if there are at least 5 students taking it. You are expected to write an essay of about 5000 words on a topic of your choice to be arranged with the module convenor.
