Consider a wide range of theoretical and critical ideas in relation to our contemporary cultural, political and sociological experiences. This course incorporates ideas from philosophy, sociology and cultural and critical theory to provide an integration of ways of thinking about our cultural formations and practices.
This course explores our ever changing global and technologically driven world. You will consider wide ranging ideas from questions of power, ideology, class, identity, gender, sexuality, technology, time and space through a complex array of different sociological and cultural/critical theory ideas and philosophies from contemporary continental philosophy.
The growing world of on-line communities like Facebook, Twitter and YouTube have revolutionised the ways in which we ‘see’ ourselves, the ways in which we create our own identities, and the ways in which we communicate. The course aims to offer an advanced knowledge of Social and Cultural Theory, and to encourage you to develop a sophisticated and critically-informed approach to the issues described above.
Through Blackboard, you will study in a supportive and intellectually exciting study environment which is responsive to your individual needs. The course also helps to develop critical skills, including argument, analysis, theoretical exposition and description, precision, and good methodological skills and enable the development of confidence and professionalism in relation to both your work and other students.
