What is ‘theory’? Why use it? How do particular theories develop? How can they be brought to bear usefully in new contexts? This unit explores these questions and more by offering an introduction to a wide range of theoretical, historical and philosophical perspectives and positions from the twentieth and twenty-first centuries relevant to literature and the arts. It asks fundamental questions about the relationship between theory, literary analysis, and creative practice. Students will be encouraged to explore a range of influential theoretical concepts and perspectives pertinent to literary studies and creative writing. They will develop an understanding of how theory can be used as frameworks for analysis and creative practice. Topics addressed in this unit may include theories of power, gender, creativity, language and literature in a range of historical and contemporary perspectives.
