The study of World Literature focuses on cultural practices and diversity; a range of tasks for each study area will be set for comparative analysis that address each of the areas below:

Cultural Practices:
Analyse the complex and dynamic interrelationships between and within cultures in a range of contexts and the impact of these interrelationships on their own and others cultural practices

The study of literature will draw on different texts (poetry, short stories, novel and film) from a wide range of different cultures and students will make comparisons between them and draw conclusions about their own situation and how it compares to those they read about.

Analyse the ways in which intercultural relationships and experiences have contributed to the development of attitudes, beliefs and behaviours, and how they are manifested in various contexts.

Through their reading and analysis of different texts, students will consider and analyse the views and values in the texts.

Cultural Diversity:
Analyse the components of a cohesive society, and the challenges, benefits and consequences of maintaining or failing to maintain that cohesion.

The selected literature will provide insights into cohesiveness and points of conflict. Literary texts such as and film provide some of the best depictions of the consequences of societal disintegration.
