Section 1: Readers, writers and texts • Why and how do we study language and literature? • How are we affected by texts in various ways? • In what ways is meaning discovered, constructed and expressed? • How does language use vary amongst text types? • How does the structure or style of a text affect meaning? • How do texts both offer insights and challenges?

Section 2: Time and Space • How important is cultural context to the production and reception of a text? • How do we approach texts from different times and cultures to our own? • To what extent do texts offer insight into another culture? • How does the meaning and impact of a work change over time? • How do texts engage with local and global issues? • How does language represent social distinctions and identities?

Section 3: Intertextuality: Connecting texts • How do texts adhere to and deviate from conventions associated with genre or text type? • How do conventions evolve over time? • In what ways can diverse texts share points of similarity? • How valid is the notion of a ‘classic’ work? • How can texts offer multiple perspectives of a single issue, topic or theme? • In what ways can comparison and interpretation be transformative?
