ANT 324L • Cultural Studies Seminar
2:00 PM-3:30 PM
The intellectual practice called "cultural studies" began to take formation in the work of Raymond Williams and the Birmingham School in Great Britain as early as the 1950s and has more recently come to incorporate contemporary trends in feminist, race and various forms of post-structuralist and post-colonial theory. The main concern of this course is to explore the richness of cultural studies literature as read though the experience of the Mexican-origin community in the United States. This will be accomplished through the reading of theoretically-informed texts in Cultural Studies as well as those on Mexican Americans.
