Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

This lecture course will introduce students to the field of Cultural Theories. Together, we will explore the most important theoretical models and perspectives of the fields of Semiotics, Marxism, Discourse-Analysis, Psychoanalysis, (Post-)Structuralism, Post-Modernism, Subculture-Studies in lecture sessions. These investigations will be grounded in practical examples focused on, but not limited to, visual culture. By this process students will be provided with the critical tools (theoretical, analytical, historical) necessary to analyze and evaluate cultural phenomena and popular media for what it reveals about:
(1) the processes of meaning making in the production and consumption of power-discourses and cultural artifacts, and
(2) the dynamics of representation, power, and knowledge as they relate to questions of class, race, sexuality & gender.
Here is a list of some of the most central theorists we will discussed in detail:
DeSaussure - Peirce- Barthes;
Marx/Engels - Gramsci - Althusser
Foucault; Derrida;
Freud - Lacan;
CCCS-theorists;
Beauvoir-Kristeva - Butler;
Hall-Said-Bhabha;
Baudrillard-Jameson-Lyotard
Gelder-Hebdige
