The Literary and Critical Theory Seminar

Posted on 21/06/2012

The purpose of this reading group is to question the extent to which critical theory in the early twenty-first century has both shaped and been shaped by a contextual ‘framing’ of the present. In doing so, we want to find out is whether today’s theorists, like their more established forebears, can still help to construct the kind of critical language necessary for the establishment of new, more textured understandings of our place in the world. Although the group is aimed primarily at students of English, it is highly interdisciplinary and those with backgrounds in other disciplines are very welcome to attend. All perspectives are valued, and we try to encourage questioning and debate amongst a diverse range of participants, no matter how well-acquainted they may be with theory or the complex terminology that it often employs.
