Introduction to Cultural Studies is a course designed to be relevant to students interested in popular culture and everyday matters of concern. The course will focus on key thinkers in Cultural Studies as well as the ways identities are constructed and maintained through everyday practices and engagement with material culture. The course content includes topics such as fashion, taste, race, gender, film, music, and the environment. Building on the tradition that started in the United Kingdom in the 1960s, this unit of study will introduce students to the key theories, concepts and methods of Cultural Studies as a globally-relevant discipline. The course will have points of engagement for all humanities students keen to build knowledge of the way language, texts and objects work in everyday culture, while equipping them with new tools of critique and analysis forged by this discipline. Introduction to Cultural Studies is designed as the entry point for the Cultural Studies Major.
