Cultural Studies Concentration

English Major Advisement Audit for Cultural Studies Concentration

The Cultural Studies concentration o­ffers an opportunity to examine texts using an approach focused on the study of cultural formations and their e­ffects. The theory and praxis of Cultural Studies will link the courses in this concentration, so that a connecting thread will be a close examination of power, agency, subjectivity and how gender, race, and class produce and reflect our exploration of di­fferent texts.
