Course Content (Syllabus)
The course RESEARCH METHODOLOGY: MODERN GREEK STUDIES (a joint course shared among members of the teaching faculty) comprises parts and is an introduction to key research areas in Modern Greek Literature (History / Historiography of Modern Greek Literature, metrics, publishing issues, Bibliology), theoretical and cultural approaches to the field and to research methodology (print and electronic bibliography) towards the writing of a scientific paper. This seminar aims to raise questions of correspondences between fundamental questions in theory and their applicability in literary practice. In studying important theoretical texts, a textual example is selected to project the application of theory (on Cavafy's poetry for instance) through previous and current criticism. Thereby activating a more profound communication with the text, familiarity with current theories is achieved while case practicing through written and oral presentations helps develop a well structured thought.
contemporary theory of literature, history of literature, principles of bibliography/publishing, bibliology, print and electronic bibliographies
