Course Content (Syllabus)
The course is a continuation of the course Υ-LOG-05, production of critical discourse. It is a training of students in a literary essay based on projects that have been studied in class (a literary work or a group of works related to the same theme). The reference text is the basis for texts’ analysis and studies on various issues such as literary, aesthetic, sociological, historical, etc.
The course focuses not only on the analysis of a single topic but also on the practice of planning of writing and the study and resolution of methodological issues.
