Overview

Students explore a range of contexts from the classroom and the learner’s experience through to education as a lever for social and political change. Theoretical perspectives are drawn from themes which include gender; citizenship; representation; truth; power; childhood and inclusion; as well as studying the ideas of the most exciting critical thinkers in contemporary cultural debate. Study in English Literature is wide-ranging and includes modern and traditional literature, cultural study and critical analysis, Shakespeare and rap poetry.

Modern, philosophical, cultural, social, psychological and historical perspectives are all used as analytical tools to help examine educational debates and a wide variety of educational themes and concepts. Students interrogate the educational process as a whole and seek answers to questions about the purpose, value, misuse and difficulties of education and learning.

English Literature modules in Year 1 provide an awareness of the range of different approaches to understanding texts to develop skills of critical analysis, research and writing. This is done through the study of an assortment of texts from various modules introduce students to educational themes, contexts and experiences through the study of a range of educational theories.
