ENG 333 - Cultural Studies Credits: 3


Involves analysis of cultural artifacts, institutions, rituals, objects, and/or processes that may be interpreted as representing a culture’s system of beliefs, values, hierarchies, ideologies, or codes. This may involve work with literary texts as well as historical documents, legal codes, material objects, music, film, and other cultural productions. Possible topics might include studies of body representation in the Civil War era; church doctrine and discourses of gender in the Middle Ages; the rise of the phonograph and the Harlem Renaissance; the politics of fashion and cosmetics during the 1960s; the fanzine and ideologies of gender in punk subculture; or film noir and ‘race’ in the Cold War. Expect to write at least one analytical paper. Specific content will vary according to instructor. The course meets the departments criticism requirement.
