Texts and Contexts: Core Seminar

CRN 29324 / Tu 1:00PM - 3:25PM / 3701 Wesley W Posvar Hall
This course introduces students to classic texts and key debates in cultural studies and intellectual history. It begins with the foundational works by G. W. F. Hegel and Karl Marx in the nineteenth century, and then the psychoanalytical movement and Frankfurt School in the early twentieth century. Then, we will turn to a survey of major methodological debates in the postwar decades to the present day over a diverse set of topics including sexuality and gender, memory and trauma, and popular culture. Offered by the History Department, this course welcomes students from all disciplines who are interested in cultural studies.
