|In this module, students will be encouraged to carry out close readings of a selection of written texts,
while taking into account the social, historical and political contexts in which these are produced. As
students develop their close reading and analytical skills, they will be encouraged to practise their
academic writing skills. In the first half of the module, students will be encouraged to read texts by
paying particular attention to the language being used to create meanings and effects. The second part
of this module will examine some of the identity patterns of marginalised groups as constructed in
samples of literary and non-literary texts.
