7. Great Writers: Learning from the Past
The project will provide a new set of key lectures, a series of downloadable electronic texts and ebooks, plus background contextual resources including a blog of scholarly posts to support the lectures and ebooks.
It is anticipated that the content will explore the historical context, discuss key texts and the writers legacy and influence on literature. Example collections may be Early English, Shakespeare, Swift, Austen, Dickens, World War 1 Poets, Modernism etc
The material, intended to provide an engaging introduction to a typical humanities undergraduate education, will be released under a suitable open content licence and therefore can be reused in education worldwide.
The project will focus on content collection and release through community collaboration and engagement. Our principal stakeholders will be the humanities subject community. We will also engage with school teachers to ensure that the material released is useful to the pre-university sector.
