Course content

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.

It 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.
