Advanced Critical Theory (EAS3131)

30 credits

This prepares you for postgraduate study or work in the culture industries by equipping you with a high level of up-to-date tools and methods of critical cultural analysis.

Depending on the group's collective experience, we cover both classic problems of genre and aesthetics and more recent critique in social theory, for example, theories of globalisation and world literatures, gender and sexuality, environmentalism, and digital humanities. The module appeals to students from a range of backgrounds and will be of particular interest if you enjoyed studying cultural and social theory in your first and second years.
