This module operates as a directed reading programme which allows students to explore topics in greater depth than is possible in core modules. Special Topics are offered by selected staff across all MLitt programmes on a rotating basis. Students who hope to go on to doctoral work may wish to use the Special Topic to conduct a pilot study in their proposed area of doctoral studies. Teaching/supervision is normally via 6 tutorials which may be individual or arranged in groups, depending on numbers. Some special topics may make use of relevant individual seminars on extant modules in place of one or more tutorials. Syllabus and reading will be finalised in consultation with the member(s) of staff.
Weekly contact: Normally 6 tutorials over the semester
