ENGL 079. What is Cultural Studies?
What in the world is cultural studies? Focusing on film, art, fashion and music, we'll explore how to read and write about culture and power. Literary close reading will go hand in hand with ethnography, historiography, cinema studies, and aesthetic theory. Highlighting how race, class, sexuality and gender intersect in the production and consumption of cultural texts, the class emphasizes how what we read is part of the world in which we live.
