Literary Studies: Pathway in American Literature and Culture

This pathway aims to enhance your knowledge and understanding of the literature that has sought to define or has emerged from 'America'. The core module at the centre of this pathway, American Literature and Culture: Criticial and Theoretical Concepts, will engage you in a rigorous study of particular phases and applications of American literary criticism and theory, as well as consolidate your knowledge of nineteenth- and twentieth-century American literature. In particular, you will study some of the ways in which nineteenth- and twentieth-century American literature sought to understand the nation in the face of the fragmenting effects of modernity and postmodernity; competing readings of canonical American texts will enable you to assess how American critical and theoretical conceptions shape American literature, producing different 'Americas'.
