Arts and Culture (CULT) - Introduction to Arts and Culture

CULT 1005  Introduction to Arts and Culture


Three hours of lecture per week.




This course is designed to provide students with an introduction to the study of culture. By investigating the nature and meaning of 'culture', and focusing on the different theoretical approaches and perspectives employed in the study of culture, the course gives students the necessary foundation to proceed with the study of various manifestations or forms of cultural expression. The course emphasizes that cultural expression is multi-faceted, and is revealed in a variety of ways, through ideas and practices, literary works, visual and performance arts, and the media (to name a few key avenues of expression). The course is also designed to facilitate an appreciation for the diversity of cultural expression, laying the foundation for the exploration of both western and non-western perspectives and practices.
