Introduction to Cultural Studies will be relevant to students interested in popular culture and the cultures of everyday life. 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. Introduction to Cultural Studies is designed as the entry point for the Cultural Studies Major. The course will also suit all humanities students keen to be introduced to some of the major thinkers and theories they will encounter throughout their degree, and equip them with new tools of critique and analysis forged by this discipline.
