The objective of the course is to introduce students to the historical development of dominant literary genres in the long nineteenth century, to their characteristics and conventions. The literary production of this period is examined within its broader cultural and socio-historical context, so that students can also develop their awareness of the influence of such environment on literary trends, the development and kinds of literary audiences, and on the formation of the canon. Students develop their research skills, especially the use of electronic and printed resources, and they develop their reading skills and academic writing.
During the semester, the students will:
- acquire relevant knowledge on the key literary movements, authors and works of the British long nineteenth century and their wider cultural, ideological and socio-historical context;
- acquire and develop the skill of close reading and text analysis
- develop the skills of speaking in class and presenting in front of a group
- develop the skills necessary for individual research
- further develop the skills necessary for academic writing (essay).
