Global Culture Studies
The degree modules offered in Global Culture Studies examine how knowledge of the world and understandings of one another are shaped by cultures of representation and ideological formations. Students gain deep training in interpreting and analysing discursive formations and critically examining cultural productions of power relations in the world. They gain practice in analysing such marginalising and oppressive principles as patriarchy, citizenship, territory, civilization, sovereignty, and the global. Students learn to identify and effectively confront racializing and racist constructions in global theories, the privileges of masculinity, ideologies of development, and human/nature dichotomies. Through such work, they gain skills and understanding necessary to become responsible cultural agents in the world.
