Event Details

 

This short course introduces you to key figures, theories and approaches in cultural theory and the broader contexts in which such theories have applied.

 

How can the work of cultural theorists help in analysing local and global issues? What happens when we start to consider the inter-relationships between culture, experience, bodies and traditions, and question the ways knowledge is produced about them?

 

As a discipline and a distinctive problematic, cultural studies, led by the work of Professor Stuart Hall, offers a way of exploring the world by interrogating and asking questions of ‘culture’ and the inter-relationships between elements the make up particular ways of life. By asking where and how people experience and respond to conditions of everyday life, cultural theory is interested in how lifeworlds are lived and the relations and attachments that are formed between people, objects, and places. Rather than seeking to find the truth of particular claims of knowledge, cultural theory provides a means of considering what is assumed, ignored, and missed during investigations. Starting with questions rather than answers, this course considers particular theoretical approaches to investigating culture, people and places.

The course dates are:

17 Jan - 7 Mar 2017

 

Classes are at 6.30-9pm. Price listed is for the entire eight week course.
