Through in-class presentations, discussions, and close reading exercises, together we will develop a broad knowledge of the historical, technological, political, aesthetic, philosophical conditions of cultural identity and the evolution of its diverse forms up to the present. These concepts will be taken up and expanded in the SE CULT later on in your studies.  We’ll discuss how these knowledges and theories can be applied didactically in the classroom and workshop/present ideas in groups.

The course teaches writing and research skills in relation to Cultural Studies topics and prepares students for writing a term paper on a topic of their choice, applying a theory of their choice.

Assessment depends on students’ achievements in the following areas: Final Exam (30%), Teaching Activity & Discussion (30%) Term Paper (35%), Term Paper Plan (5%)
