Code: CLTR3501/AR35A - Title: Discourses in Cultural Studies
Pre-requisite: CLTR2501/AR25A - Credit: 3 - Semester: 2
Lecturer:  TBA

The course introduces students to the expanse of the Cultural Studies disciplinary terrain, its methods of inquiry, its contribution and essential nature. This will be achieved by close examination of the process of institutionalization and the spread of Cultural Studies as a discipline throughout the northern and southern hemispheres. Using the Birmingham and Frankfurt Schools, with their original interests in working class cultures, youth subcultures and the media, as a sort of intellectual and historical beginning, students will be guided through a Cultural Studies “map” of practice and discourse. Students will study both the methods and objects of Cultural Studies scholarship
