Drawing on a broad range of examples, and encouraging students to observe and engage in storytelling with children, LIT124 focuses on narrative in the oral tradition - fables, myths and legends, nursery rhymes, poetry, fairy tales, games, drama - and on what happens when such narratives are written down, visualised and adapted to the digital space. Issues addressed include literary and cultural contexts, age-appropriateness and evolving concepts of the child and of a literature specifically for children.
School of Humanities and Social Sciences
Although not a prerequisite, some experience in observing children will be an advantage.
