Subject Description
This subject examines the relationship between literature and economics as ways of understanding human societies and subjectivity. Students will analyse literary texts alongside the writings of economists and anthropologists, focussing on concepts of the market and on the construction of debt in its moral, social, and financial dimensions. Students will read a broad range of fictional and non-fictional literary and filmic texts from different historical and cultural contexts to ask: How do literary texts register, reflect, and respond to economic constructions of human subjectivity, social relations, and life narratives?


Subject Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this subject, students will be able to:
1. Critically analyse how literary texts from a range of cultural and historical contexts register and respond to their socio-economic context, including the contemporary construction of debt, money and the market
2. Accurately and self-reflectively deploy a critical vocabulary of technical terms drawn from economic criticism and related critical schools, including Marxism, in the analysis of literary texts
3. Analyse and compare the differing ways in which human subjectivity, social relations, and life narratives are constructed in the discourses of economics and of literature
4. Deploy theories of the dual economy of debt and credit (as both a system of social/moral obligation and a financial system) in the analysis of literary texts
