Hours & Credits
Beyond 'fat cats' and the 'rat race'; from office politics to climate catastrophe; family fights to cosmic conflicts, this course examines the implications of late capitalism in the Scottish literary imagination. It asks how fiction writers have imagined the individual's relationship with the broader political and social structures of their times, and it sets out to scrutinise how ideology governs our understanding of history and our place in it.
