Storytelling is considered to be a universal cultural practice. The study of narrative forms and structures thus contributes to a general understanding of how people make sense of themselves and their world. This course enables students to expand on concepts and skills from first and second year courses, providing more detailed strategies for analysing narratives in a variety of different textual forms, including novels, films and new media. Analyses of texts will also include studies of important historical and cultural contexts, to highlight the relationship between text and context, but also to demonstrate the general validity of studying storytelling as a mode of engagement with the world.
