Program Description:
Description
In this class, students will be familiarized with comparative approaches in contemporary (Anglophone) cultural theory that engage with the central issues of representation and discourse, memory, race, class and gender. We will discuss the central tenents of Critical Race Theory, intersectional feminism, decolonial theory and critical diversity studies, reading the seminal writings of American and continental European thinkers such as Judith Butler, Stuart Hall, Lauren Berlant, Audre Lorde, Sylvia Wynter and others. Our discussion of the theoretical texts within a comparative framework and through practical examples will reflect and facilitate the adoption of a broader transnational and transcultural approach to contemporary (Anglophone) cultural theory, one that reflects a wealth of different perspectives that challenge the idea of a universal or homogenous “western” canon of cultural thought.
