Recommendation: AFK1506
Purpose: is designed for students at Afrikaans first additional language level. Its purpose is to equip students with the knowledge and skills required to confidently read and evaluate Afrikaans texts from a variety of genres and subgenres.

They will examine how and why boundaries between "literary" and "popular" genres are not always clear-cut, and pay particular attention to kinds of genre fiction currently prominent in Afrikaans, such as crime and detective fiction, romantic fiction, horror, thriller and ghost stories. Finally, students will recognize that authors can stay true to a genre's specific conventions ("rules") or deliberately and creatively deviate from them, as is often the case with satire and parody.
