This advanced elective in English explores the history of modernism. Students will examine exemplary texts that are representative of key movements in the literature and culture of the modernist era. The writers and texts explored in this unit set the agenda for today's literary practice. Through close textual analysis and research, students will build knowledge and skills for the study of literary history. The assessment tasks in this unit focus on: key concepts and techniques for close reading in literary studies; effective research approaches and methodologies; and communicating research findings in the form of an essay.
