    INTRODUCTION TO LITERARY STUDIES

    This module will provide students with a grounding in the study of literature and criticism. It offers the skills required for the continued study of the discipline. During the module, we will discuss a variety of genres: from drama and poetry to fiction, asking basic questions about the context, nature, form and reception of each of these genres throughout its development.

    Through studying poetry students will acquire a basic knowledge of how the genre works, the relationship between form and content, as well as changes in poetry over time. We will study plays from different periods and in different modes, be they comic or tragic. When studying the novel, we will ascertain how this genre took over the literary scene in the 18th century and became a staple of literary and cultural production.

    WHAT IS HISTORY?

    History is an imprecise art, and what historians say and write about the past is not the same as what actually happened. This module will introduce students to the study and presentation of the past. It will focus on developing the skills students will need to work within DACE History modules over the course of their study at Swansea University. It will offer an overview of how history as an academic discipline has changed over time.

    Students will consider the following broad topics: how to read, think and write as a historian; how to approach primary and secondary sources; understanding historiography and historiographical shifts; thinking critically about how the past is used in the public sphere; and reflecting on how the study of history will equip students with skills beyond the immediate discipline.
