General description Advanced research within the field of cultural and literary studies in the Anglophone world. Through the study of a wide variety of literary and cultural readings which are representative of geographical backgrounds and historical periods, students are offered the possilibity of analysing and discussing the overall periodization of Anglophone literatures (i.e., the Renaissance, Romanticism, Realism and Naturalism, Modernism, Postmodernism) as well as the dominant ideological and cultural patterns in each period and geographical context which give rise to such literary productions (i.e., social fiction in the Great Depression, existentialism and Theatre of the Absurd in the postwar years, the rewriting of history and identity within Postcolonial literatures, self-reflexivity and cultural parody in the postmodern era, etc.). Via an applied, practical methodology, the complex interrelations between artistic and literary creation, critical theory and reader reception, and cultural and sociopolitical trends will be discussed as determining factors in the formation and ongoing evolutionof literary canons in the Anglophone world.
