CULTURAL STUDIES

Short Description

Cultural Studies endeavours to understand the political dimensions of culture, examining the ways in which culture is a site of contestation, conveying different ideologies, and embodying different values as well as emotions of the people. Our programme facilitates a critical and interdisciplinary study of contemporary local and global culture so that students may envisage alternative ways of life and social changes. Through close analysis of a variety of texts - including films, all kinds of performance, city as well as virtual space of the web, issues related to everyday life, media representation, gender and sexuality, and cultural development will be discussed.
