Cultural Studies

Cultural Studies is an interdisciplinary or multidisciplinary field of research and teaching that investigates the forms of life and culture produced in today’s interconnected world. Cultural Studies explores ways in which “culture” creates and transforms individual experiences, everyday life, social relations and power. By taking its objects of analysis in people’s everyday practices and cultural engagements—production, circulation and reception--Cultural Studies is open to both academic and non-academic pursuits and develops flexible tools that adapt to this rapidly changing world. With its attentiveness to power relations, hegemony, inequality and diversity, Cultural Studies has a productive role to play in promoting social justice and building a better world.
