Module overview

English has always been on the move. As a literary language, it has not only travelled from and back to England; lines of influence between texts, authors, publishers, editors, book technologies, and readers traverse the globe in multiple directions, between many places. Correspondingly, literary genres have always been mobile. They have taken shape and become significant in different ways across world cultures, and through encounters between different languages. This module gives you the opportunity to explore how ‘English’ as a literary language; as an overlapping range of imaginative genres; and as an academic discipline has always been in transit.
