Textual Practices - ENGL389

This unit aims to connect students’ critical and analytical thinking with textual encounters both within and beyond the contexts of academic university research. It is designed to integrate, synthesise and refine the reading, writing, knowledge and skills students have acquired across the multiple and diverse topics within their study of English. Its focus is the study of literary essays, which have been widely disseminated in public culture, and to understand how these examples of literary writing address both public and private spheres of influence in historical and contemporary textual practices. In this unit, students will also be asked to critically evaluate and relate these texts, which cover topics from historical periods to the present, to their own current reading practices.
