Please note: This module may or may not run in any given semester. Please check with the tutor.
There will be one lecture and one workshop per week for each student. Lectures will provide an introduction to each of the topics covered in the module. Workshops are designed to introduce students to the electronic resources available for the study of English in the Late Modern period, including the OED online, ECCO, and historical language corpora, and to provide them with the skills needed to complete the assignments. Two workshops will be devoted to team presentations and two workshop hours will be set aside for teams to work on their presentations.
There will be two assessments:
1. A team presentation (40%). Students may choose which of the two team presentations to submit for assessment. They should submit the power-point slides from the presentation (20%) and a written version of the presentation which includes an account of the student's individual contribution (20%).
2. A 3,000-word essay (60%). Students will be given a list of titles no later than week 6.
