Voices and texts


Designed to follow our key introductory course in arts and humanities, The arts past and present (AA100), which you are strongly advised to study first, this course focuses on language in a wide range of contexts and from the perspective of different academic subjects. These include subjects familiar from studying The arts past and present - classical studies, history, literature, music, religious studies - and two additional subjects, creative writing and English language studies. Voices and texts will help you to prepare for your studies at Level 2 by giving you opportunities to sharpen your analytical skills and to develop new approaches to your own writing.



What you will study
In the first week you will be introduced to several major recurring themes that you’ll encounter during your study of Voices and texts. You’ll complete short activities both online and from the printed Study Companion. Here – and throughout the course – the text-based materials are supplemented by audio-visual examples provided on the course DVDs.

During this week you will also make your first contact with your tutor and other students. This will be through the online forums in the Virtual Learning Environment, in readiness for your first assessment, which involves online group working. The rest of the course is presented in three books, each covering four weeks of study, and separated by assessment weeks. You will be expected to study for about fifteen hours a week.

Book 1: The Voices and Texts of Authority
In Book 1 the theme of authority is considered through examples drawn from religious studies, literature, classical studies and music. The opening chapters examine how authority is sometimes conferred on texts through establishing approved ‘canons’ of selected works, whether they are religious, literary or musical. The second half of Book 1 focuses on modern works that draw on Ancient Greek texts. These show how authority is ‘re-made’ through conscious use of traditional sources, developing fresh and sometimes challenging resonances. The materials for this book range from a Buddhist prayer to South African drama, illustrating the breadth of the book’s theme and laying an interdisciplinary foundation for the whole course.

Book 2: Identity and Expression
English language studies and creative writing are introduced in Book 2. Chapters on ‘Spoken Voices’ and ‘Written Voices’ examine the communicative process through a variety of real-life examples. These focus on the relationship between language and identity, and the way language is used in different social settings. A chapter on ‘Invented Voices’ examines in more detail the artifice involved in representing ‘constructed’ rather than actual voices, using the techniques of creative writing as a means of exploration. The final chapter, ‘Poetic Voices’, investigates another fundamental distinction, that between prose and poetry. It also covers creative writing strategies that will help you to experiment with ways of shaping language.

Book 3: Voices and Texts in Dialogue
In the final part of the course, history and literature come together in a case study centred on mid-Victorian Britain. Book 3 begins in Manchester in the 1840s. It introduces the topic of industrialisation, with a particular focus on the way that ideas about social order were produced and exchanged. This first chapter shows how economics was embedded in Victorian culture, a theme that is then taken up in discussion of Charles Dickens’ novel Hard Times (1854). The central chapters of Book 3 open up a number of different approaches to reading nineteenth-century fiction. These include understanding the conventions of the genre, as well as the relationship between Dickens’ popular novel and the society in which it was produced. In the final chapter, more historical sources from the 1860s will be added to the textual mix to explore how political culture gave voice to some, and not to others. Throughout the book you will develop your skills in inter-textual reading as you trace significant ’tropes’ and rhetorical patterns across a range of different source materials.

Entry
Level 1 courses provide core subject knowledge and study skills needed for both higher education and distance learning, to help you progress to courses at Level 2. As this course builds on the skills and knowledge developed through the study of The arts past and present (AA100), we strongly advise you to study AA100 first.

If you have any doubt about the suitability of the course, please contact our Student Registration & Enquiry Service.

Preparatory work
We strongly recommend that you study The arts past and present (AA100) before registering for Voices and texts, as it builds on the skills and knowledge gained from studying that course. However, if you have successfully completed one of our previous introductory Level 1 courses in arts and humanities – such as A103 (now discontinued) – this may be suitable preparation for you to study this course.

Our Moving on to A150 website highlights key sections of the course and will help you to decide whether you already have the recommended background knowledge and skills to study this course.
