In this unit, students will be given an overview of the central paradigms and applications of cultural studies as they have arisen in multiple locations such as Western Europe, the Caribbean, and the Americas. Cultural studies can be conceived as an interdisciplinary practice, located at the intersection of sociology and anthropology, literary theory and philosophy.
