Storying Sheffield

LIT3066 . Identity/crisis: Self, trauma, narrative

Before the course starts please read W.G. Sebald’s Austerlitz .


A very different book we’ll be reading is Kathryn Littlewood’s memoir Cultivating Madcow. Kathryn is a local author and I’m hoping she’ll be able to come in and talk to us about her book.  You can get the book via this website and also via Amazon.


We will also be looking at the work of Edmund de Waal, and in particular his book The Hare with Amber Eyes.


and the novel Remainder by Tom McCarthy



Some lectures by Michel Foucault (in English) are useful background material.

Here’s the original screencast for the module.
