Courses offered in this area invite students to explore what it means to be human with reference to a range of texts and modalities. Students are offered a range of courses that discuss different kinds of text critically, often from a cross-cultural or inter-cultural perspective. They can also participate in discussions and activities in domains such as aesthetics, creative arts, performing arts, literatures of different languages and cultures, and different cultural expressions of religion, spirituality, philosophy, ethics and memory.
