Module Guidelines


The mark you will receive for this module is based entirely on coursework (100%).

There is no formal end of year year examination or time-constrained assignment.

Coursework Guidelines

During the course of the year you must have produced:

  • 2 essays which are each worth 40%. One essay must be on a single author (2,500-3,000 words) and one essay on a comparative question (2,500-3,000 words) from different sections of the module. You are required to one essay in Semester 1 and one essay in Semester 2.
  • 1 oral presentation on a topic approved by Tony McNeill or Alka Kurian (20% of total mark) from any of the sections.

  • Deadlines

    The deadlines for your written assignments must be kept to as penalties in the form of percentages deducted from your marks will be strictly enforced. If you need an extension for an assignment you must put in a written request to Tony McNeill (Forster room 36) in advance of the deadline. The deadlines are as follows:

  • Assignment 1: 9th January 1998
  • Assignment 2: 17th May 1998

  • Penalties

    All late work will be penalised unless an extension has been granted. Penalties are:

  • 10% off work up to 7 days late
  • 20% off work more than one week late

  • Presentation of Written Assignments

    All assignments should be well presented and should be either word-processed (the preferred option), typed or neatly hand written. Marks will be deducted from assignments which do not include a full bibliography. For guidelines on how to write essays and commentaries refer to your Guide to Written Assignments found in your handbook.
