Course Description

This course studies the development of shorter prose fiction in Gaelic in the twentieth (and twenty-first) century. It will investigate the importance of the short story and consider its place within the wider Gaelic culture. It will involve reading, analysing and discussing several of the most important Gaelic short stories of the period. Students will also be engaged in directed self-study outside of class, which will involve substantial amounts of additional reading in fields such as the literature of other languages, history, biography, social commentary, philosophy, critical practice and critical theory. Students will extend their understanding of the subject by exploring additional texts (both in Gaelic and in other languages they know) not covered on the syllabus by means of independent research, setting the topics treated in their wider context and synthesizing material from a range of sources.


Details for second half-session courses, including assessments, may be subject to change until 23 December 2022.
