The 'Contemporary Literature' module will encourage students in their final year of study to reflect upon their accumulated reading experiences and to explore and implement their critical vocabularies by examining a number of contemporary writings. The module is not intended to be a culminating point of previous study, just as contemporary literature is not purely a culmination of its forebears. Instead this module will present students with a series of challenging texts that provoke consideration of the interrelationships of past, present and future. The module will include texts that self-consciously analyse the impact of the past on the present, but it will also foreground material that deliberately postulates the relationship between present and future. In so doing students will be required to address the hybridity of notions of the contemporary.
