The first part of the course gives an overview of the most influential theories within the field of cultural studies, sampling some ways that they have been applied to different types of texts, such as films, TV shows, and graphic novels. In the second part, the students develop a research project and write a research essay focusing on some specific cultural work or practice, independently chosen by the students.
