3. Course contents *

This course introduces the concept of the canon, "literature in English" and literary history, and then provides a historical overview of the development of literature in English, from Beowulf to the present day.

In addition, students follow 6 seminars in smaller groups where they discuss recent literary texts in English (4 novels and 1 short story), as well as a critical article. In these seminars, we reflect on contemporary forms of canonisation.

Finally, students complete one writing assigment in which they present a short analysis of a literary text.
