This year-long, fortnightly workshop will be structured around a dialectic between the close, slow, or deep reading of selected texts, performances and a range of contextual, historical and other theoretical approaches to literature, theatre and other forms of textually. It will encourage students to reflect upon themselves as researchers and writers, allowing them to consider their social, cultural and intellectual positioning in relation to the projects they are beginning to define. Students will examine a range of historical debates in different literary and cultural traditions regarding canonical and popular literature. Individual seminars will be devoted to key topics such as periodization, literary history, the archive, memory, style, reviewing and refereeing, translation and textually. We will also engage with current debates about the role of the humanities, and literature, more specifically, in contemporary culture and society. Students will read a range of texts and genres from the medieval period through to the twenty-first century, mostly written in English, but some in translation from other languages.
Successful completion of the Research Workshop will enable students to have an enhanced awareness of the range of contemporary scholarship in the discipline or interdisciplinary area. In the assessment, students will be expected to demonstrate the ability to critically evaluate the contemporary research literature that is relevant to the thesis topic. The Research Workshop will also enable students to formulate and present the research proposal for confirmation.
