Module overview

We tend to assume our world is shaped by the geographies of continents and nation-states. This module allows us to grasp the significance of other spaces. Exploring how islands and oceans, ports and ships, deep water and coastal zones have been imagined, we will understand the ways in which long traditions of literatures written in English have been configured by offshore and liminal geographies. This focus will further enable us to understand the broad and intricate historical, political and cultural importance of islands and oceans.
