About the MA in Critical Theory and Creative Research
CT+CR seeks to help forge a discipline that does for the new relations obtaining between words, images, and objects what the field of rhetoric accomplished for language; to unify the major strands of critical theory, revivifying it as a powerful tool of criticism and critique; and to create new ways of understanding, situating, and configuring knowledge and research in the new century.
