How to Crosslist a Graduate Course

Professors: find out how to crosslist your graduate course with Cultural Studies below.

Faculty interested in cross-listing a graduate-level course with the Cultural Studies Program for Fall 2022 should do 2 things by the deadline of 4 p.m., Friday, 4 March 2022 (due to continuing COVID-19 dislocations, we are happy to consider crosslist requests after the deadline):
1.      Download this form to your computer, save it, fill it in, and save it again, then email it as an attachment to CLST Course Scheduler Lorri Keeling-Oliver ( cc-ing to your home department administrator and CLST Program Director Ron Zboray ( Not all information needs to be completed, but at minimum provide the COURSE NUMBER, TITLE, AND DESCRIPTION [description should be written with a Cultural Studies audience in mind].  Use upper and lowercase, not all caps; 

2.      Cc the email to your departmental administrator.
PLEASE NOTE: We request that faculty recommend a category for their course. A, B, C, D. Please find category descriptions here. Note that this year faculty may recommend only ONE category.

We ask faculty to submit courses consonant with the profile of the program. This typically includes the exploration of issues such as:

·          the relationship between culture and politics;

·         study of culture across national boundaries and disciplines;

·         the formation of disciplines and intellectual institutions;

·         the production of texts;

·         cultural antagonisms and crises 

It is critical for the program's coherence and graduate-student interest that we avoid listing courses that do not address these issues.  However, we even consider traditional survey courses, courses on the life and work of a great artist, introductory literature courses, core course, etc., is there is sufficient "cultural studies" content in them to justify a crosslist.
