Radical Renaissance Writer

 

This short, 6-week course will delve into the fascinating work of six writers from the 'Renaissance' period who challenged mainstream authorities during their lifetimes, with a focus on the relevance of their classical education(s). This course is unique because it brings together six authors, 4 women and 2 men, who are rarely taught together - if taught at all. We will ask important questions such as: What does it mean to be a radical thinker or writer? What do they have in common? What can we learn from them about the art of rhetoric? Who are the radical thinkers today? How do they use and engage with classical authors? Enrolment includes a welcome pack, activity worksheets, interactive lectures + access to tool-building seminars called 'thinking pods'.
 

This online course forms part of our pioneering Challenge the Canon series, designed to help students think independently, gain a fuller understanding of history and discover exciting new research areas & approaches beyond the boundaries of their formal education.
