Students will receive supervisory assistance and guidance depending on staff availability and expertise. The choice available might include, for example, North American literature (both Canada and the United States); children's literature; Australian literature; post-colonial literature; English literature from the Romantic era to the present; film studies; and 'traditional' literary theory from Plato to the present day, with particular emphasis on moral questions in literature. Students should contact the discipline coordinator to discuss both their own interests and the factors governing availability.
