A chance to read extracts from and discuss selected extracts from the long list Man Booker prize.
No formal requirements. Learners simply need a willingness to discuss literature. It will be helpful to have read the novels selected in advance.
Dates and times
Up to seven works from the Man Booker longlist will be discussed. The list will be finalised by late August and made available to give prospective students an opportunity to read ahead but no formal preparation is needed. The course will be flexible to respond to student interest and the publication of the shortlist shortly after the first session. It will continue beyond the date the prize is awarded – there will be the chance for the group to decide if they think the judges got it right!
This will be an informal discussion group.
Exams and assessments
This is a non-assessed course.
The course does not lead to a formal qualification.
Frequently asked questions
Do I need to buy all the books on the longlist?
No, copies of key extracts will be provided. However once the selection for the course is finalised and made available, students could read ahead if they wish.
there is no formal progression route but we would be interested in student ideas about other literary based course we could run.
