Debates in Cultural Studies - GCST4208

Year - 2020

Cultural studies involves the study of texts and practices that constitute the ways that people live. In this unit, students explore and analyse the concepts and debates that recur in this field, such as representation, cultural relativism, subjectivity, agency, identity, difference, and everyday life. Students will focus on how arguments about culture can be developed in line with these and other concepts, through various forms of evidence and methods of analysis of culture.
