Students have to participate actively and regularly.
The courses will introduce students to the concept of "Cultural Studies", presenting the main topics, methods, and models connected with this approach. We will strike a balance between the theoretical and practical aspects of "culture", i. e. abstract approaches will always be applied to "cultural practices", such as film, advertising or consumption. In addition, categories like class, gender, and identity will be discussed with regard to their reflection in contemporary American and British culture. Texts will be provided.
