Description:

This course introduces students to the central ideas, themes, and issues involved in the study of culture. Students encounter the theoretical foundations of the rapidly developing interdisciplinary field of cultural studies in order to engage in critical inquiry and analysis of media. Topics might include representation, rituals, activities, spaces, narratives, and spectacle. Such engagement challenges students to examine the ideological underpinnings of media and their messages. This course may be credited towards a Major in Fine Arts (Art History and Visual Studies Stream).
