British Cultures: The Exeter Seminar (EAS2033)

15 credits

This module is designed for inbound study abroad students and will provide you with a critical introduction to some familiar, and not so familiar, aspects of British Culture from the early modern period through to the present day. The module covers a variety of cultural forms (including literature and film) and genres (including drama, fiction and poetry) and encourages you to reflect on the processes by which – sometimes competing – ideas about national identity have been created, disseminated and interpreted. Teaching is by regular seminars and occasional workshops, some of which will draw on the resources of the University’s Special Collections and Bill Douglas Cinema Museum, and includes a field trip. Assessment is by a reflective learning log, a group presentation, and an independent study.
