Overview

THIS STREAM IS FOR STUDENTS COMMENCING FROM 2016.

The minor stream in English covers literature from a range of historical periods, from the Renaissance through to Postmodernism. Students in this stream study literature in a variety of contexts: cultural, political, biographical, social, theoretical, and ideological. The stream also provides students access to the breadth and diversity of contemporary literary and cultural studies. It encourages students to adopt interdisciplinary methodologies and theoretical approaches, such as poststructuralism, feminism, gender studies, postcolonialism, creative writing, and discourse analysis, in order to engage in dynamic fashion with more traditional approaches to the discipline, such as close reading, aesthetic evaluation, and canon formation.
