Module: Texts, Culture and Value


Students examine a key text from the past and its manifestations in one or more popular cultures.


Through close study, you will

  • consider the relationships between the text and its culture
  • explore the language of the texts and examine the ways in which language shapes and reflects values
  • consider the effects of different ways of responding to texts
  • consider the ways and reasons the original and later manifestations of the text are valued.

You will also:

  • explore, analyse and critically evaluate different examples - of such appropriations - in a range of contexts and media…including some appropriations of your own choosing.

  • Knowledge, values and culture have become at once global and local through the globalisation of communications.

Introduction to Elective 3: Navigating the Global
  • Choice and circumstance have created a range of individual and community responses to this changing reality: some have embraced or warily accepted it, while others have challenged or retreated from it.
  • The ideas, language forms, features and structures of texts may reflect or challenge ways of thinking during this period.

  • Two of which must be print texts,as well as other texts of your own choosing.
  • In your responding and composing you will explore, analyse, experiment with and critically evaluate their prescribed texts and a range of other appropriate examples.
