Student wins payout over 'sex-obsessed' creative writing course at Welsh uni
Share This Article:
A student has won £750 compensation after complaining her courses teaching was too 'sex obsessed'. Angie Marynicz, 61, complained that the writings of Edgar Allen Poe and Shakespeare were disturbing and she found the lecturer’s “ignorant and callous delivery of such sensitive topics” distressing. Marynicz complaint was about her course at the University of Wales, Trinity St David. Mrs Marynicz wrote in her complaint: "One of the compulsory modules for the BA (Hons) Creative Writing course was Critical and Cultural Theory. "The first lecture for that module was listening to the lecturer read aloud the Edgar Allen Poe short story The Black Cat, which is a graphic account of domestic abuse where the abuser puts an axe through his wife's head. "As he finished reading the story, he giggled which I found very upsetting and offensive. I emailed him twice to tell him so - to which I received no reply.
