Hours & Credits
This is a module that asks how an understanding of narrative can inform a wider concept of culture, and
specifically how an understanding of the strange temporal structures and time-experiments of contemporary
fiction reflect or produce changes in the modern experience of time. It focuses on examples of backwards
narration, flashforward, transhistorical jumps and fuzzy temporality alongside a range of philosophical
and social theories of time. Given that narratology is the systematic study of narrative, and that narrative
is everywhere, the module also aims to assess the social and philosophical scope of narratological concepts.
