Teaching begins on new module: Authorship & Philosophy

The Crito Project is rolling out a new type of module for our students, one designed to help them get up to speed and to gain confidence in close-reading texts. The nine-week module will involve our reading a classic of science fiction together, whilst learning some key techiniques that authors can use to create meaning, ambiguity, complexity and character. We will also be investigating the text through the lense of philosophy, considering reader-response theory, anarchist polticial theory, Daoism, and theories concerning time and causation. If successful, the module will be repeated with different types of text, building towards a three-part series of introductory modules that teach academic good practice and philosophical concepts whilst also introducing exciting and novel ways to read classic works of ficiton and non-fiction.
