- Utopias and Dystopias in English Literature
Through seminar discussions we will address the origins of the Utopian genre, its developments in the 20th century and the degree to which the genre is a means of commenting upon the present as much as it is a way of speculating about the future.
- The Shock of the New: Modernism and Literature
This course will explore the theory and practice of literary modernism in Britain and Ireland through the study of three exemplary texts: James Joyce’s Dubliners (1914), T.S. Eliot’s The Waste Land (1922), and Virginia Woolf’s Mrs Dalloway (1925).
