ENG3170 Diverse Voices in Literature
Credit Points: 15

Students evaluate and research a range of critical and theoretical approaches, including that of the use of the English language, in their analyses of fiction and non-fiction, written by or about people who have risen to the challenges of potential marginalization on account of migration, indigenous origins or disability. The unit interrogates and researches both the inspirational and the confrontational effects that these works have on readers as well as on the social contexts that have produced them. It examines ways of approaching diversity within the community and emphasises the particular importance of understanding individual people within the time and place of their experiences as well as within the time and place of the publication of their diverse voices.
