LITR11055 Popular Genres
This course introduces students to the study
of fiction, film and other media by examining the practices associated
with reading particular genres such as romance, fantasy and crime.
Each genre comes with its own special effects, and at the same time,
draws on the generic effects of its medium. Students will explore the
importance of popular genres to the understanding of contemporary
life, its meanings, values and modes of behaviour. This exploration
also functions as a prelude to more advanced studies in literary
and cultural studies.
