Cultural Diversity in Literary Contexts - WLL2601

Under Graduate Degree Semester module NQF level: 6 Credits: 12
Module presented in English
Purpose: This module will be useful to students who want to develop competencies in interacting with different world views on a selection of thematic issues. These competencies include the ability to engage with different cultural views from across the world as expressed through the medium of literature. The ability to discern the origin and nature of, for example, cultural stereotyping aims to develop individual tolerance and respect for cultural differences. A critical awareness of diversity in cultural constructs when related to the learner's immediate environment will enable the learner to develop further independently. All study material will be in English, but students will also be given access to primary texts in the original language if they wish to further their language skills.
