Description

This course provides an exhaustive explanation of historical and theoretical developments in literature and culture. It explains linkages between technological developments and societal changes which ultimately impact the literary landscape. The course explores and also analytically evaluates the critical frameworks which are available to us today regarding the intersections of literature, culture and media. We find that there are complex ways in which society and culture give rise to new forms of perspectives and ideologies and these aspects of our experience are not static.

The course aims to teach the theoretical understanding of different concepts and discusses various philosophical, aesthetic, critical and cultural topics. You will receive an analysis of the many forms in which literature enters the media and public arena in contemporary times. Another very crucial aspect that you will get to understand is to look at the texts in an unconventional manner. You will see how the definition of a text is defined, redefined and expanded upon in modern times. You will also learn, from the discussion about the historical, empirical and cultural analysis of contemporary forms of culture, literature, identity and power relations.

The course will highlight the evolving and changing perceptions in society from the 18th century to the postmodernism era and their ultimate influence on literature. Through this course, students will get the opportunity to analyse the complex ways in which literary and cultural products or texts inter-animate each other to produce and reproduce the ways in which society and culture give rise to new forms of perspectives and ideologies. It will enable you to expand the horizon of your knowledge and acuire necessary insights to develop cross-cultural understanding in a diverse and dynamic working environment. It is time to take advantage of this offering and get learning.
