Extension Course 1 - Common Module: Literary Worlds - Elective 4: Literary Mindscapes

Elective 4: Literary mindscapes

In this elective, students explore and evaluate how literary texts can invite responders to engage with the interior worlds of individuals and how they perceive, think and feel about themselves and the societies in which they live. They analyse how texts communicate notions of identity and alternative ways of being and thinking through representations of the mind, including desires, motivations, emotions and memories. Students consider how these diverse textual representations enable the responder to experience insight into the lives of other groups and individuals, and other times and places. Students critically evaluate the values and assumptions embedded in texts and consider their own in relation to issues reflected in texts. They reflect on the ways in which study of the texts may influence their own sense of identity.

In their responding and composing, they explore, analyse, experiment with and critically evaluate their prescribed texts and other appropriate texts. They write their own imaginative compositions that represent the interior worlds of others.

In this elective, students are required to study at least three of the prescribed texts (including at least two extended print texts) as well as other texts of their own choosing. At least two related texts must be studied. Texts can be drawn from a range of times, contexts and media and should explore the interior world of others.
