From surveying the castle, we proceed to the cathedral. This venerable structure was erected by Herbert de Losinga, in 1096, whose statue is over the north transept door. The chapel of our Lady at the end (of which there are now no remains), was built by Bishop Suffield, between 1243 and 1257. The tower, rebuilt by Bishop Walpole, 1297, who also began the beautiful cloister, was finished by his successors, Bishops Salmon, Wakering, and Alnwick. The latter prelate rebuilt the west front of the church, and the north gate of the bishop’s palace.

The module explores how representations of suburban environments and lifestyles have captured central tensions within American society: about race relations and ethnic identity, gender roles and sexual deviance, the threat of nuclear war, and consumerism. At the same time, the module looks at how writers have sought to reimagine these seemingly banal environments as sites of wonder or as places with complex histories; close attention is paid to the formal innovations involved in telling new suburban stories. The module considers suburban fiction in relation to recent theoretical approaches to space, place and the everyday, and students will examine material drawn from a range of disciplines, including philosophy, geography and architectural studies.
