Literary Cultures HEN408

Hobart

Introduction

How do we engage with literary texts today? How does literature become a brand? This unit considers key aspects of contemporary literary culture that shape the way we perceive and consume literary texts. Topics to be considered will include school curricula, literary prizes, marketing, and phenomena such as literary festivals and bookclubs. Students will have the opportunity to read a range of contemporary prize-winning texts and will construct and critically reflect upon their own literary cultural activities.
