Radical Renaissance Writer


Flexible Course In this course you will delve into the fascinating work of six writers from the 'Renaissance' period (1400 - 1700) who challenged mainstream authorities during their lifetimes, with a focus on 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. 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? How can they shift our perspective today? This 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 authors & approaches beyond the boundaries of their formal education.
