Introduction to Cultural Studies

1st year American Studies Major, Fall 2016

This course offers an introduction to the main concepts, theories, and methodologies of Cultural Studies/ American Studies as an academic discipline, ranging from established theoretical frameworks (feminism, gender studies, postcolonial theory, Marxist and post-Marxist criticism etc.) to recent research discourses (disability studies, border studies, urban studies etc.). One of the focal points of the course is represented by a theoretical investigation of the social construction of such notions as “race,” “ethnicity,” “gender,” and “ability” in the American cultural space.
