    CompulsoryMODULE SEMESTER 1 & 2

    INTRODUCTION TO LITERARY STUDIES

    This module will provide students with a grounding in the study of literature and criticism. It offers the skills required for the continued study of the discipline. During the module, we will discuss a variety of genres: from drama and poetry to fiction, asking basic questions about the context, nature, form and reception of each of these genres throughout its development.

    Through studying poetry students will acquire a basic knowledge of how the genre works, the relationship between form and content, as well as changes in poetry over time. We will study plays from different periods and in different modes, be they comic or tragic. When studying the novel, we will ascertain how this genre took over the literary scene in the 18th century and became a staple of literary and cultural production.

    WHAT IS HISTORY?

    History is an imprecise art, and what historians say and write about the past is not the same as what actually happened. This module will introduce students to the study and presentation of the past. It will focus on developing the skills students will need to work within DACE History modules over the course of their study at Swansea University. It will offer an overview of how history as an academic discipline has changed over time.

    Students will consider the following broad topics: how to read, think and write as a historian; how to approach primary and secondary sources; understanding historiography and historiographical shifts; thinking critically about how the past is used in the public sphere; and reflecting on how the study of history will equip students with skills beyond the immediate discipline.

    Its second theme, crisis, focuses on the devastating impact of plague, famine and warfare, and the increasing persecution of heretics, lepers, homosexuals, and Jews.

    TALES OF TERROR: GHOSTS, MONSTERS AND OTHER ANXIETIES IN LITERATURE AND FILM CULTUREDo you wonder how and why particular novels such as Frankenstein, or poems such as ‘The Rime of the Ancient Mariner’ continue to have a wide and critical appeal? Do you think about why films such as Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining continue to send shivers down your spine, even on repeat viewings?

    What do these ‘tales of terror’ tell us about ourselves and the world in which we live? Do they shed a light on cultural anxieties and particular periods in history, or are they pure escapism? How do they tap into our most intimate fears and desires, and how are they expressed and represented in our culture?

    In this module you will study range of literature and cinematic texts that explore the shadowy worlds created through figures of fear, feelings of excess and paranoia, and texts that test the limits of reason, and confront us with ‘the uncanny’.

    CRIME AND SOCIETY

    This module provides an introduction to criminology and focuses on some of the key perspectives and debates around crime and deviance. Students will be introduced to competing arguments regarding how crime and deviance may be defined, different theoretical approaches to understanding crime, patterns and prevalence of criminal behaviour and victimisation, the relationship between crime and social factors such as social inequality, deprivation, class, age, gender and race, etc. and social responses to crime and deviance.
