Overview

Teaching Theory is a collection of essays which addresses the impact of Theory upon degree courses, the practicalities of teaching and the broader rationale for literary studies as a university subject. Essays range from pieces which examine the problems in bridging the divide between landmark Theory texts and an accessible teaching programme, through the benefits and otherwise of the abundance of student-targeted Theory-Guides to reflections upon how, forty years after its arrival in the UK and the U.S., Theory has altered the landscape of literary studies.
