Cultural Studies

Cultural Studies is the exploration of the links between the arts and other human activities in complex societies. It includes both high art and popular culture, both ancient texts and new hypertexts. Cultural Studies is interdisciplinary in its methodologies and in its goals of finding integrated and contextualized views of human cultural activities. It is centrally concerned with issues of identity and power, particularly relating to gender, ethnicity, class and other sites of contestation.

Cultural Studies courses will be of interest to all those wishing to understand the myriad ways in which cultural texts and practices construct and reproduce representations of ourselves and our societies.
