The Study

12pm        Interpreting Texts

What does it mean to interpret a text critically? It means questioning what you read and thinking about what the author wants you to believe. Join us for this Interpreting Texts taster session. Delivered by staff teaching the English and Creative Writing courses, this taster session will focus on an extract from a well-known text and introduce you to the skills required to do a close reading of the text. No prior knowledge or experience necessary.
