|Coordinator(s)||Elizabeth Hale (firstname.lastname@example.org)|
This unit promotes critical reflection on the processes involved in reading and writing, using the case study of fantasy literature. It encourages students to analyse their own reading experience in relation to theories concerning the reader's reception and the writer's production of texts. Students are exposed to critical thinking and personal reflection by fantasy writers and literary scholars. The unit considers the role fantasy plays in contemporary culture, and explores the worlds it produces for readers and fans. Students are asked to analyse the skills necessary for writing fantasy literature, and apply those skills in creative or critical assessment work.
