HUMT20016 - Research Dissertation Creative Writing A

General Information

Unit Synopsis

This unit requires you to write a substantial creative piece accompanied by an exegesis which will be completed in HUMT20017: Research Dissertation Creative Writing B, that is, the dissertation is the one sustained project, not two separate term projects. The topic will be negotiated with a supervisor. The creative piece may be either Fiction, Poetry, Drama or any other approved mix and will be accompanied by a theoretically informed exegesis (critical commentary) of a combined length totalling 15 000–20 000 words. The creative piece will be expected to reflect a high-level synthesis and stylistic application of the writing skills you have acquired through HUMT20012, HUMT20013, HUMT20014, and HUMT20015. The Dissertation will be formatted using Harvard Author-Date Referencing Style.
