Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

This lecture course will introduce you to major theoretical approaches, selected practices and key issues relevant to the study of culture/s. Cultural Studies makes use of a plurality of approaches and methodologies which have been developed in the contexts of different disciplines and positions, ranging from philosophy to sociology, from Marxism to psychoanalysis, or from linguistics to literary theory. This diversity also reflects the plurality of possible meanings that can be associated with the concept of “culture”. We will learn about the production and consumption of cultural artefacts and investigate key issues such as culture and meaning making processes, identities shaped by gender, race and class or the interrelation between power and knowledge. There will be the opportunity to "do" Cultural Studies and we will apply theoretical models to a wide range of cultural material with a focus on British popular culture. Our examples will range from the Monarchy to anarchy, from High Culture to punk, from the Mini Cooper to the mini-skirt and from Hamlet to James Bond.
