Literary Studies

Literary Studies encourages students to take an interdisciplinary and comparative approach to the study of literature. We will read works from the English-speaking world as well as works in English translation. We will work across the Humanities and the social sciences to follow the literary interests of individual students and the research and teaching strengths of faculty.

Students who have declared their focus area in Literary Studies will be expected to do a final project on a literary topic with a supervisor in Literary Studies.

Prospective students can contact the focus area’s steward, Dr. Jolene Armstrong, jolenea@athabascau.ca

NOTE: Literary Studies is not open to students admitted prior to September 1, 2011.
