Module content and teaching

Principal aims

This module examines the way in which the modern notion of identity, be it the nature of human subjectivity, gender or ethnic identity, were all shaped by intellectual, social, scientific and aesthetic processes and movements from the Enlightenment onwards.

Principal learning outcomes

Both these stereotypes of self, gender and ‘race’ and the creative challenges put to them by writers remain with us today and enrich us by deepening our understanding of the historical processes that led to how we understand ourselves and our others and help inform our insights into these issues in the present and for the future.

Timetabled teaching activities

Teaching will consist of nine two-hour seminars in term 2. The first hour will usually involve a (partially interactive) lecture and the second hour will involve seminar-style group discussions and student presentations.
