Course Aim

At the end of the course, the advanced student will

  • Be able to find articles and/or other materials within this area of study
  • Be acquainted with some key debates surrounding the role of Literature in English Education and explain the underlying causes of the differences of opinion
  • Have read and be able to demonstrate knowledge of some key theoretical texts
  • Demonstrate knowledge of some research methods associated with the area of specialisation

Contents

The goal of this course is to enable the student to gain a general understanding of Literature in L2 language education and to be able to design a study to examine a specialist topic within the field. The course is divided into the following three sections:

  1. General theories of Literature in L2 language education (2,5hp)
  2. Research methods for Literature in L2 language education (2,5hp)
  3. Specialisation within Literature in L2 language education (2,5hp)

The course segments must be completed in the above order.

Students should already have a general command of English studies before they begin this course. This course is likely to be taught 1:1 with a specialist teacher. A reading list of the most suitable materials will be compiled in collaboration with the teacher. Students will also be expected to find their own materials. These materials will be discussed orally and examined by written assignment.
