ENGL6967 - Literary Theory and Critical Practice

Summer Main, 2013  |  Credit Points: 6

Coordinator: William Christie

Description

While concentrating on recent developments in literary theory and critical practice -psychoanalysis, hermeneutics, feminism, poststructuralism (deconstruction), New Historicism, postcolonialism, and cultural studies - this unit also considers these developments in the context of the much older humanist traditions (from Aristotle to F R Leavis) that they challenge and seek to revise.
