The interdisciplinary course in Critical Methodology is built around a required module in critical theory. Students will be introduced to the main debates in current critical theory through the exploration of a series of key texts. It explores theories and practices of reading, from Formalism and Structuralism through Barthes and textuality to queer theory, psychoanalysis, materialist and postcolonial theories. In addition to this required module, students may choose from a list of modules linked to critical theory in a range of subjects. Each student will investigate and write a dissertation on a topic that links the required module to the material of one or more of his/her optional modules. This course is ideally suited for those with a humanities degree and are looking to prepare for PhD study, or if they want to pursue a career in teaching, journalism, the media and the arts.
