Butter, Michael, Prof. Dr.
Introduction to Cultural Studies
Zeit: Mi 14-16
Ort: Kupferbau, 25
Beginn: 26.10.2016
This lecture course will introduce concepts and methods for the study of culture. It will offer an overview of various theories of culture and approaches in the field of cultural studies. We will test these theories and approaches by applying them to a broad variety of cultural products, most of them taken from American culture. However, to provide some coherence and to demonstrate how different concepts shed light on different aspects of one work, we will return in each session to the films of the The Hunger Games series. Students in the BA "Interdisciplinary American Studies" also need to enrol in one of the two accompanying seminars. Because of the different requirements in different programs, the technicalities of exams and credit points will be explained in the first session.
