Modules & assessment

Year one, core modules

  • Performance Processes
    This module will give you an introductory understanding of the development of Western performance through an examination of both practice and critical material. By considering significant moments, key movements and practitioners in the history of Western performance, you'll question the nature and function of performance, theatre and music and consider their interdisciplinarity. Within this context, you'll be introduced to a range of performance texts as examples for a practical exploration. You'll approach the historical investigation of key movements and practitioners with an emphasis on performance processes rather than end product, being introduced to working methodologies and practices from the full history of Western performance, and addressing their political, cultural and socioeconomic significance. By relating theoretical and practical approaches, you'll examine changes in form and conventions in performance practices.
  • Studio Performance
    In this module, you'll take part in a collaborative, studio-based live performance based on a selected text or combination of texts, often involving active deconstruction or reinvention of the piece. This 'text' might be a play-text, music theatre text, other devised performance works or live/recorded music. You'll analyse the text's significant actions and meanings, and explore the ways in which they could be realised in performance. You'll be encouraged to develop lighting and sound designs for the performance, documenting them for use by back-stage technicians, and explore effective set or costume design. Throughout the rehearsals, you'll investigate ideas of postmodern performance in practice and consider how the production of such work might differ from traditional techniques in theatre-making.
  • Ways of Reading
    This module will introduce you to studying English Literature at University, and allow you to develop skills such as reading critically and communicating clearly. In the first semester you'll get an overview of the degree structure and examine some key critical terms, problems and approaches for students of English. These include, for example: the literary canon and value; narrative theory; realism and representation; genre; the production of meaning; relationships between literature, history and the world; selected approaches to literature, (including formalist, new historicist, feminist, psychoanalytical and postcolonial criticism) and relationships between literature and identity. You'll explore these topics through a selection of critical texts and short extracts from plays, novels, short stories and poems (extracts provided). You'll attend a one-hour lecture and a two-hour seminar each week, including a library induction session.

Year two, core modules

  • Making Performance
    This module will allow you to design, direct and perform in a large-scale public performance, created from a selected source text. As a group, you must agree effective methods of decision-making, show full commitment to rehearsals and production meetings, and demonstrate a willingness to participate in all aspects of work on the production. If you're a Performing Arts student at Cambridge, you can also be assessed as a musician or singer within the rehearsal process and performance. If you take Performing Arts at University Centre Peterborough, you may be assessed on their physical theatre work. Collaborative production modules require professional conduct from all students. Your conduct will be measured on reliable attendance, punctual arrival at rehearsals, maintaining high levels of concentration within sessions and your willingness to take direction from others. 50% of your final mark will be based on the live performance and 50% will be a portfolio mark, composed of research elements as well as your attendance and contribution to the production process. This module includes content and assessment relating to the Employability component of Personal Development Planning.
  • The Body in Performance
    On this module, you'll explore the use of the body in contemporary performance and theatre practice and the ways in which it can challenge dominant political, cultural and artistic ideologies. You'll consider how the body in performance is framed and/or revealed as being subject to ideological and social forces that restrain it, and interrogate performance's potential to resist these forces. By critiquing structures of power and knowledge, you'll examine the place of the body in contemporary culture, while posing questions about the political efficacy of performance and the ethical implications of the work. This work could include live art practice, dance theatre, digital performance, activism and bio-art. Each week, you'll concentrate on a particular set of thematics examined through the work of selected artists and companies, developing theoretical and critical approaches to examining performance in relation to the body. In seminars, you'll interrogate ideas and theories through a mixture of performance texts, web material, videos, reviews, interviews and critical essays from major theorists in the field. Where possible, you'll be encouraged to attend appropriate performances, exhibitions and installations as part of the course. Your assessment will focus on your ability to articulate research findings through oral presentations, along with a final research essay at the end of the module.
  • Performing Shakespeare
    This module will introduce you to the field of contemporary performance theory and practice in relation to Shakespeare. You'll study of a range of 20th and 21st century critical and directorial interpretations of plays by Shakespeare in the theatre and on film. You'll also explore issues that continue to be contested today, such as power, sexuality, gender, justice, morality, religion and war, as well as directorial strategies and creative responses to Shakespeare's plays that take a variety of practical approaches to acting and performance. Your exploration will focus on the ways in which critics, directors and actors generate meanings from Shakespeare's plays, drawing on the details of primary texts, secondary criticism and examples of contemporary creative responses to the plays. For your assessment, you'll select a sequence from one of Shakespeare's plays to stage as an ensemble performance, supported by practical workshops on ensemble and collaborative creation. This performance may include interdisciplinary work involving music, song and a variety of performing styles. You'll also attend seminars that will guide the development of your project proposal, and group tutorials to help you set up your group project. In preparation for the ensemble performance, you'll submit a 1,500-word analysis of how your chosen play has been interpreted in contemporary criticism, and examine a range of creative responses to it in the theatre and on film.
  • Postcolonialism
    On this module, you'll explore the meanings that were once attached to the British Empire and how some 19th and early 20th century writers expressed their often contradictory and ambivalent attitudes to the imperial project and the responsibilities of running an empire. These writers may include Rudyard Kipling, E.M. Forster, Flora Annie Steele, Rider Haggard, John Buchan and George Orwell. You'll then read and analyse selected texts by writers from nations which have won their independence from Britain (for example Derek Walcott, Anita Desai, Chinua Achebe, Buchi Emecheta, and Ama Ata Aidoo), making comparisons and contrasts with texts written from European perspectives. You'll also be introduced to the ideas of post-colonial theorists such as Edward Said, Gayatri Spivak and Homi Babha, and discuss influential critical concepts such as orientalism, the subaltern and mimicry. You'll end the module by examining the significance of multicultural ideas and examples of writing produced by both first- and second-generation immigrants to Britain, possibly including some film or television material. Your assessment will take the form of a 3000-word essay, allowing you to demonstrate your understanding everything that has been covered, including your knowledge of set texts.

Year two, optional modules

  • Performance Practitioners
    This module will introduce you to the work of key theatre practitioners. You'll examine a range of major practitioners and explore different modes and approaches to their work through both critical and practical engagement with their ideas, methodologies and creative strategies. You'll explore methodologies through a mixture of theoretical seminars and practical sessions, with the classes providing space for student-led explorations of rehearsal techniques. The practitioners covered might include, indicatively: Artaud, Brook, Meyerhold, Ninagawa, Boal, Grotowski, Mnouchkine, LeCompte and Kantor. You'll be assessed through a workshop demonstration and an oral presentation at the end of the module, in which you'll be required to explore selected practical methodologies.
  • New Media Performance
    This module will introduce you to recent innovations in contemporary theatre and performance through a practical and theoretical consideration of new technologies and forms of information exchange available to theatre-makers at the start of the 21st century. You'll examine the technological interventions that give rise to mediatised performance as well as the new methods of its dissemination, and explore this in practice by using technologies of sound, music and video to produce a piece of mediatised performance. You'll be expected to engage with the interfaces between live performance, digital technologies, social networking sites, mass participatory sites of video performance, online arts marketing and experimental film-making. You'll be assessed through the production of a short, mediatised performance piece designed for dissemination through digital technologies (rather than a traditional theatre or television studio location). You'll also learn about the production of mediatised performances that can be used as a multi-media element within live theatre practice, studying selected multi-media practitioners as you produce, react to and question the value of such technologies in performance.
  • Design for Performance
    On this module, you'll examine the processes by which the designer and director/deviser work from a 'text' towards the physical manifestations of a performance: venue, sets, costumes, and props. You'll be introduced to a variety of research methods that can be used to investigate a text, as well as the history and theory of stage design in addition to basic techniques of design and production. Working with a set text, you'll undertake a series of group exercises to explore aspects of the design process. You'll be assessed by a portfolio that demonstrates your research into primary sources (text and visual), and annotations showing analysis, development and appraisal of design ideas, as well as a 1,000 word essay that will reflect critically on this work.
  • Myth and Medievalism
    On this module you'll examine a range of medieval English literature, focusing on the late 14th century, and exploring the links between literature and a changing society. You'll examine, through careful close reading, the complex relationship between text and context, considering greater realism in the representation of the Judaeo-Christian myth in the context of threats to the feudal system. You'll study mystery plays, romances and religious literature alongside selected Tales by Chaucer, and the re-appropriations of myth in a case study that suggests the wider links between myth and ideology. You'll study extracts from each text in the original Middle English, though good recent translations by modern poets will also be available, allowing you to pursue the question of the inevitable re-inflection of myth in changing cultural contexts.
  • News and Feature Writing
    This intensive reading and writing module will introduce you to the techniques of print journalism, focusing on news reports and feature articles. The skills required for effective news and feature writing are a key component of writing craft in any genre of fiction or non-fiction. It's a discipline that improves the imaginative work and communicative power of those who practice it. You'll explore the significance of journalistic writing in contemporary life using examples from a range of British tabloid, broadsheet and local publications. You'll practise sourcing news reports, developing feature articles and sub-editing for style and content. In seminar workshops, you'll combine analysis of journalistic techniques with practical writing exercises, covering topics that include: researching and pitching a story; interviewing; ethics; embargoes; structure; tension; style; register; layout; puns and rhythm; personal values; precise knowledge of context and audience; working to deadlines; and economical use of language. Early on, you'll produce a set of briefs that must be approved by the seminar leader, then produce copy for these briefs and, in editorial teams, giving and receiving constructive criticism.
  • Romantic Conflicts
    On this module, you'll explore Romanticism and Revolution - two concepts that are often usefully linked. You'll study literature by focusing on a sequence of key political events, rather than focusing on the 'self'. This, and focusing on writing that attempts to 'intervene in' the public world, will allow you to draw connections between the three phases of Romanticism, and to examine a variety of canonical and non-canonical authors, and writing in a variety of genres. You'll also examine the emergence of popular literature, the kind of writing that dissolves the difference between the 'high' and the 'low', as produced by figures such as William Hone, and Shelley in his Mask of Anarchy. You'll be assessed through a 2,500 word essay (at the end of semester 1) and a ten minute presentation and exam in semester 2. The exam questions will be released 48 hours in advance of the exam.
  • The History of the Book
    In this module you'll explore the cultural and technological contexts of the publishing of literary works, and the history of the publishing industry in Britain, and the effects of globalisation on that market. You'll examine its styles, types and trajectories, and consider that history in light of the market for books, pamphlets and periodicals, and the issues (such as new technology, new infrastructure, copyright and censorship) that have affected them. You'll also look at the way authors and editors have exchanged their works with readers and audiences around the world. You'll be able to examine and analyse trends and approaches throughout the history of British publishing, and explore the results. Your assessment will consist of an independently-researched portfolio, including a critical assessment of an issue identified in the seminars, accompanied by supporting evidence presented as a blog, a series of slides, an electronic scrap book, or in an alternative electronic format of your own choice.
  • Special Topic 1
    This module will allow you to extend your knowledge and understanding of a specific subject area that you may have encountered earlier in your studies, and in which there is deemed to be scope for more reading, critical commentary, analysis and discussion. Alternatively, it might be used to introduce you to a topic that is not found elsewhere in your existing degree provision. This topic may be the study of a single author, a group of cognate authors, or some aspect of literary theory, for example formalist criticism or deconstruction. Topics may also cover a literary genre, such as the short story, gothic literature, 20th century science fiction, crime fiction, or 18th century drama. As the designated topics change from year to year, you will need to ask your tutors which topics are being offered this academic year. This information will be made public in good time for you to make your module choices. There are no formal lectures and the module is taught in seminars, in which you'll be encouraged to take part in group discussions. You'll be assessed by a 3,000 word essay, allowing you to demonstrate your understanding of everything has been covered on the module, including your knowledge of set texts.
  • The Victorian Experience: Texts and Contexts
    On this year-long module, you'll engage with Victorian texts and their various contexts in both breadth and depth. You'll study material representing a wide generic and chronological range within the period and, from the outset, examine texts in relation to key historical developments and the issues - political, social, cultural and intellectual - to which these developments gave rise and currency. In the first semester, your main literary focus will be on poetry, but your study of notable poets (such as Tennyson, Elizabeth Barrett and Robert Browning, Clough, Arnold, Meredith, the Rossettis and Swinburne) will be interspersed with a consideration of relevant contextual topics and debates (such as industrialisation and urbanisation, science and religion, cultural values, and gender issues). In the first half of the second semester, your work will be devoted to mid-Victorian fiction. You'll compare novels by, for example, Dickens and Gaskell, which offer different models of realism and different versions of a search for identity, with reference to the contextual issues introduced in the first semester. For the rest of the module time, you'll explore literary and contextual developments in the late Victorian period, assessing generic innovations (the 'new' drama of Wilde and Shaw, short stories by Kipling, Vernon Lee and Olive Schreiner) in relation to contextual novelties, such as the new woman, the new imperialism, socialism and aestheticism.
  • Anglia Language Programme
    The Anglia Language Programme allows you to study a foreign language as part of your course. You'll take one language module in the second semester of your first year in order to experience the learning of a new language. You must select a language you've never learnt before from the following: Chinese (Mandarin), French, German, Italian, Japanese, and Spanish.

Year three, core modules

  • Devising Performance
    On this module, you'll explore the processes and practice of devising work for the theatre. In the first part, you'll undertake a practical exploration of the various approaches to, and the methodologies of, devising performance, through workshops and exercises. You'll also be introduced to the work of various performance and theatre practitioners/companies who utilise devising in their creative process, in order to examine strategies and potentials for performance. As a group, you'll then engage in a production process, led by a member of staff, to develop, rehearse, design, market and realise a piece of devised performance to be presented to an external audience. Prior to the final performance, you'll submit an essay that critically investigates the processes of devising, with specific reference to your artistic, historical and theoretical contexts. You'll need to demonstrate self-discipline, professionalism and commitment to the classes and additional rehearsals, and you'll be assessed at the end of the semester through the public live performance. The module will give you a creative, project-based opportunity to synthesise and develop the skills and understandings that you'll have acquired previously on the course.

Year three, optional modules

  • Performance and Identity
    This module will introduce you to a variety of contemporary theatre and performance in the context of relationships between identity and performance. In particular, you'll interrogate the relationship between identity and performance and the ways in which performance might be deployed strategically in the service of specific political, ethical and cultural agendas. In the course of this enquiry, you'll consider the ways in which dramatists, companies and performers have used performance as a vehicle for expressing identity positions that are often marginalised or alienated by dominant cultural practices, such as gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer, disabled, and marginalised class/ethnic identities. Each week you'll concentrate on a particular set of thematics, examining them through the work of selected texts, artists and companies. In seminars, you'll explore relationships between performance and identity through a mixture of performance texts, web material, videos, reviews, interviews and critical essays from major theorists in the field. You'll present the initial findings of your research in seminars as an assessed presentation, producing a one-page handout for members of the seminar group as part of this assessment. This presentation will give you invaluable preparation for your final essay.
  • Contemporary Texts
    On this module, you'll focus on contemporary drama, theatre and performance produced since the 1990s. You'll explore, in practice, the potential stagings of the pieces selected, debate their original reception and assess their impact on subsequent works. In the absence of substantial critical evaluation of such recent performances, you'll be expected to develop and defend your own independent and evidence-based judgements concerning the work. However, you'll also be asked to conduct internet searches to access available review notices in newspapers and/or periodicals and to research, through the MLA bibliography, any relevant recent scholarly articles or chapters, discussing the status of such research material as you encounter it on the course. You'll compare the production of authored texts and some of the techniques used by contemporary devising, dance theatre, music theatre and 'physical' theatre companies. For your assessment, you'll produce a live performance using a sequence from any work studied on the module. This scene or sequence may be edited or adapted to aid your creative interpretation of the original material. You'll also complete an oral presentation and an open question session based on your creative work in your performance, explaining your decisions as director and how this relates to the original staging and/or critical context of the piece chosen. Your should treat your oral presentation as a research assignment, giving careful consideration to its presentation in a live context.
  • Enterprise in the Creative Arts
    This independent study-style module will provide you with an element of work experience, in preparation for your future employment. You'll identify an individual area of work placement that doesn't overlap with anything chosen by other students and, before the semester begins, check the feasibility of your proposal. You'll need to be critical in your approach, to establish clear parameters for evaluation. You'll develop important transferable personal skills, and learn to evaluate the level of attainment achieved in particular contexts. Employment activities in the creative arts are often self-generated, and self-employment may feature significantly in your future work plans. The module incorporates elements relating to the development of entrepreneurial skills. Early on, you'll give an oral presentation focusing on your proposed content, and the opportunities and constraints of your chosen placement. As well as receiving tutor input at this stage, you'll benefit from the views of both your peers and employers, as well as gaining an insight into how others plan to work within comparable contexts. You'll undertake the work placement element itself either in 'sandwich' mode during the semester or in a 'block' during the Christmas vacation or January inter-semester period. The nature of the your involvement in the work placement should facilitate ongoing reflection.
  • Contemporary Fiction
    On this module, you'll study a range of fiction from 1990 onwards, examining formal and thematic issues and the relationships between them. You'll consider narrative experimentation (the recycling of old stories and forms, the representation of history) and the interrelated topics of voice, place and community. As there is inevitably an absence of established critical texts on the contemporary works studied, you'll also consider alternative methods of reading, alternative sources of critical opinion (academic journals, the internet, broadsheet and broadcast journalism), and the ways in which new novels demand and shape new criticism. You'll be assessed through a 3,000 word essay at the end of the semester.
  • Modernism and the City
    This module focuses on literary Modernism from the turn of the 20th century to the 1930s. You'll explore the ways in which the distinctive features of Modernist writing - subjectivity, the psychological, innovations in form, style and genre - are produced by urban experience. You'll study a range of texts that 'write' the city in order to explore the centrality of urban culture to modernity and the avant garde, and explore the use of journeys, travel, displacement and symbolic quests in Modernist literature in relation to issues of cultural geography and historical context, as well as narrative form. You'll also discuss the cultural exchanges occurring in London, Paris and New York with reference to ideas of exile and expatriation. Over two semesters, you'll consider the internationalism of the Modernist period, as well as its interdisciplinarity: the influence of the First World War, changes in visual art (primitivism, post-impressionism), technology, cinema and journalism will play a central part in the course. You'll also consider the material conditions of the texts' production. These texts will show you different reactions to the early 20th century city, in relation to ethnicity, gender and class, and will include examples of both canonical and non-canonical writing. You'll study them in relation to the literary movements encompassed under the heading of Modernism (Imagism, Futurism, Vorticism, Surrealism), analyse their place in, or absence from, the canon, and examine changing critical approaches to them during the 20th century (including New Critical, Feminist, Cultural Materialist and Historicist). Your first assignment, an evaluation of a key critical essay (to be approved by the seminar leader) will provide you with preparatory research for the following essay.
  • Modern Science Fiction
    In this module, you'll study the development of modern science fiction, concentrating on major texts from the postwar period. You'll acquire a detailed knowledge of the history of science fiction and a critical understanding of the problems of defining it in relation to other forms of literature, as well as gaining an understanding of the distinctive pleasures that science fiction offers its readers. The emphasis will be on science fiction as a distinctive literature of ideas. You'll primarily consider science fiction as a literary form rather than with its manifestations in other media, but the demands of adapting science fiction to other media will also be considered. You'll read an anthology of short stories, a history and a collection of critical essays supplemented by recommended novels (used to exemplify different phases of science fiction from the 1930s to the present day, including 'The Golden Age', the British 'New Wave', cyberpunk and World SF). You'll be assessed through one essay of 3,000 words, showing your good knowledge and understanding of at least three texts.
  • Working in English, Communication, Film and Media
    This module, with a focus on work experience, will help prepare you for targeted entry into the world of multimedia, film, television, cinema, radio, video, teaching, publishing, arts administration and related creative and cultural industries. You'll identify, negotiate and carry out a work placement, or produce a commissioned product, in a chosen area, with guidance from the relevant Course Leader and Module Leader, who will provide ongoing consultation, supervision and support in association with the University's Careers Service. Once you've agreed your placement with the employer, Course Leader and Module leader, you'll undertake it in a series or block of hours. In the case of a commission, you'll draw up a detailed proposal in consultation with the external client/agency and your designated project supervisor. You'll bring a critical and theoretical perspective to your work experience or commission, allowing you to reflect upon the nature, advantages and constraints of particular work opportunities, as well as your own aptitudes and interests. This will include your job search, application and selection processes. You'll develop a portfolio and write a critical essay, both of which you'll submit at the end of the semester. Your portfolio should include: your CV; copies of a range of academic work (including a DVD showreel, where appropriate); evidence of extra-curricular activities; evidence of work experience. Presentation is crucial to your portfolio, and you should make use of all available multi-media when refining your work. There are no designated pre-requisites for this module but you must have previously attained credits that'll allow you to meet the demands of your specific placement and to have developed critical and theoretical understanding that'll underpin your placement. This module will form part of your ongoing programme of Personal Development Planning.
  • Special Topic 2 (English and Media)
    This module will allow you to interrogate a specialist area of contemporary research in the subject area, particularly those with ongoing research being produced by staff members in the Department. Some topics may allow you to explore in greater depth matters covered in other modules; others will introduce material not otherwise covered in the existing provision. The choice will vary from year to year. A topic may be the study of a single author, a group of cognate authors, or some aspect of literary theory, for example formalist criticism or deconstruction. Topics may also cover a literary genre such as: the short story, gothic literature, twentieth-century science fiction, crime fiction, or eighteenth-century drama. You'll take part in group discussions in seminars, rather than attending formal lectures, and be assessed through a final 3,000 word essay, allowing you to demonstrate your understanding of what has been covered on the module and to engage with current critical debates.
