The Cultural Studies & Critical Theory Major Research Project:
The Cultural Studies and Critical Theory Major Research Project is the analysis of a well-defined topic, framed by a clear research question, and firmly situated in relevant critical conversation(s). The MRP strives to demonstrate the study’s broader relevance and implications of the thesis in detailed clarity. These projects provide either an original contribution to knowledge or a significant re-framing of the issues or topics in question. Some students, in consultation with their supervisor, opt to produce an MRP in an alternative format (e.g. a video, art or photography exhibit, or an elementary/secondary school syllabus). These creative/alternative MRPs also include a significant theoretical component.
