Abstract

This paper explores the experiences of the students who opted to take this module as part of their combined English Language/Media/Literature/Linguistics degree in the School of Humanities. Details of the findings from a research project are interspersed with a narrative from one of the guest speaker sessions. The actor, Paul Moriarty came in to talk about the history of political theatre and led a workshop where students pitched an idea for a play with a social theme. The rationale behind presenting the paper in this way is to give readers a three dimensional account of the module and provide an example of a teaching and learning method that was successful in this scenario. Paul’s talk is indented and in italics to distinguish his voice from the voice of the author.
