February Session of Industry in Theory

Industry in Theory, Friday 22nd February, 4-5pm, Lipman 121, Northumbria University


The February session of Industry in Theory will take place this Friday (22/2) led by Sarah Winter, a 2nd year PhD student in English Literature here at Northumbria University.  This session will have a distinctly Gothic feel with us comparing Edmund Burke's Reflections on the Revolution in France (1790) to two different Gothic texts, namely M. G. Lewis's infamous novel The Monk (1796) and James Boaden's Gothic play The Secret Tribunal (1795).

As with previous sessions we will be reading short extracts from the texts and then discussing the potential links between them, whilst considering how critical theory can be used to inform our process of textual analysis.  These extracts are listed below.

Refreshments will be provided and the discussion will undoubtedly continue afterwards in The Carriage.

We will look forward to seeing you all then!
