ENGL 0240 - Cultural Studies

Credits: 3

The study of American culture through the study of various art forms, such as literature, film, music, visual arts, television, and performance in an interdisciplinary context with an emphasis on critical analysis of cultural texts and events from multiple perspectives including differences in race, class, and gender. This course is always offered with a particular focus, such as an historical period, a current topic, or a specific theoretical approach. Issues of formal differences, varied multicultural and multi-ethnic reception, and universal human response are considered as the class acquires a critical vocabulary. Students will also enter the creative process and explore first-hand the different attributes of some of the genres studied.
