This module and its 'partner' module ML5001 seek(s) to provide the kind of research training now regarded as indispensable for all postgraduates by exploring a range of literary and cultural theories through which texts of all sorts may be conceptualised, criticised and analysed. We will study a broad chronological and national range of seminal thinkers and theories, which might typically incude: Nietzsche; Gramsci; Sartre; reader response theory; Foucault; Barthes; narratology; affect theory; ecocriticism.
