This module seeks to provide the kind of research training now regarded as indispensable for all postgraduates. It has both a theoretical and a practical orientation, and seeks to relate one to the other. Its aims are to (i) debate and enrich our common concepts of writing and reading, of evaluating and relating texts, by providing a range of different perspectives on literary theory and the methodology of criticism and literary research; (ii) offer practical advice on conceiving, pursuing, organising and successfully completing a literary research project.
