到達目標


A course of study developing an understanding of the ways that we approach the interactions between cultural products and society. Students will learn to think about how they interact with advertisements, movies, literature, news reports and other socio-cultural products and also about their own development in the context of the culture they inhabit.

授業の進め方・学習方法


Activities in class will be centred on extracts from texts by key thinkers in cultural theory. Once the students have established an understanding of a range of approaches to cultural products, they will be given opportunities to apply those ideas to texts and/or images through discussion.

Assessment will take the form of formal writing about text and/or image in the context of the theories approached. Examinations will also apply cultural theory to specific works.
