This Honours-level seminar course is designed to engage advanced students in the disciplines of English, Film, Media, Music, Theatre and Performance and Dance in a survey of contemporary cultural theory and in-depth discipline-based analysis. The course begins with an interdisciplinary focus on cultural theory in order to foster a field of conceptual commonalities across disciplinary boundaries. It then sees students break into disciplinary sub-groups to allow the debates within cultural theory to illuminate particular conceptual and analytical challenges internal to each discipline.
