My latest Kindle book is Theory Without Fear, which is designed to be a gentle introduction to theory for students and teachers of A Level Media Studies (particularly at A2). Each chapter has a linked presentation on Google Docs, which can be used to support lessons or revision.
I’m aware that many of my presentations lack notes/commentary, and this book is part of a master plan in which both work together.
Includes chapters on:
- Liberal Humanism
- Marx and Hegemony
- Freud and his successors
- Structuralism and Post-Structuralism
- Genre (including The Uncanny) and Narrative
- Reception Theory
- Putting theories together
In addition to Media Studies, the book should also be useful for other subjects which deal with theory, such as A Level Sociology and English.
