Contemporary British Fiction and Film

Description:
This course will take a wide-ranging view of contemporary British fiction and film by reading novels and watching films about Great Britain (i.e., England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland) produced between 1980 and the present moment. We will study the dynamic internationalism of English writing and filmmaking; we will investigate the highly politicized regionalism apparent in novels and films from Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland. Finally, we will contextualize our in-class discussions of the novels and films with select essays about contemporary politics in Great Britain and, more broadly, contemporary theories about film and narrative theory.
