Module overview

This module provides a comprehensive introduction to the analytical frameworks at the heart of the MA Languages and Cultures programme. Through guided weekly readings, discussion-based seminars and reflective short assessments, you will develop the skills required to engage at an advanced level with the high-level texts and concepts you will come across during the taught and research components of your MA programme. Producing short reflective accounts will hone your writing and communication skills. You will be encouraged throughout to reflect on early ideas for your dissertation, which you will then develop on a more practical and concrete basis during the semester 2 Research Skills module.
