Written by teachers who are also at the forefront of the development of critical theory, The State of Theory offers a diversity of perspectives, both practical and theoretical, on the current state of literary studies in education.Since the 1960s, the object of literary studies has become increasingly problematic. Critical theory and cultural studies have combined to challenge traditional assuptions of exactly what we mean by 'literature'. This development in English studies is now also complicated by recent changes in the institutional structure of education.Written by teachers who are also at the forefront of the development of critical theory, The State of Theory offers a diversity of perspectives on the current state of literary studies.Topics discussed include:* Race and gender in literary studies* The value of student 'Theory Guides'* The impact of theory on teaching practice* The future of theory in our English departments
