We live in a power-divided and divisive world. Critical social theory seeks not only to expose these power relations but provokes thinking about practices to change them; to bring about social justice and human freedom. This course provides an advanced introduction to critical social theory. It charts the ‘classical’ attempts to formulate a universal and synthetic critical theory, and more recent forms of situated, partial and reflexive theories. Accordingly, this course introduces you to some of the most significant thinkers and perspectives in both classical and contemporary critical theory.
