COM 297A - Topic: Introduction to Cultural Studies

Course Description: Cultural studies is regarded as an interdisciplinary mode of inquiry into society's arts, beliefs, institutions, and communicative practices and remains an intellectual formation that resists easy definition or conceptualization. It has no research methodology that it can call its own but the choice of research practices depends upon the questions that are asked and the questions depend on their context. Given some of the historical tensions that constitute the body of cultural studies, this course will address the question of "what cultural studies really is," and what it means to study culture as a field of cultural practices that reflect domination, subordination, and negotiation.
