Aims and objectives

This unit focuses on the relationship between literary theories and how we write. It guides students through the production of a piece of writing that employs a theoretical lens of the student’s choice.

1. Identify, critically evaluate, and analytically reflect on the theories and methodologies of literary and creativity theory relevant to writing and reading practice
2. Demonstrate a high level of reflexivity in evaluating which theoretical approaches to reading and writing can be applied to their own writing and critically analyse the choices of theory by their classmates
3. Generate a piece of writing that applies the complex knowledge, skills and methods of literary theory to a narrative or document and demonstrate a mastery of specific elements of writing practice
